“Proud to be Proud” (Gender vs Gender pt.2)

Open Cafe Magenta 06.11.2019
By: Sara Rondena

This Week Open Cafe session, which is held every Wednesday at  9pm in Magenta, was dedicated to genders & proudness.

Hey there Do you recall the Gender vs Gender Open Cafe we had early October?! Well here we go again!

This Open Cafe Evening has been really intense and emotional.

After an introduction to break the ice, Matteo, Leader of the event, asked us to join in a circle. We started watching a video coming from Denmark, related to genders and Stereotypes followed by a Question: What is pride for you? After a brainstorming we came out with some responses.

At this point Matteo asked to find a video on youtube related to our answers and o show it to the others. It has been super interesting to see each idea of proudness translated in an existing video! We were also asked to summarize the video in a single word.

During the final debriefing, Matteo, listed the words that we selected before, and it was really emotion to see how all of them suited in the video we first saw at the beginning of the event.

In the next weeks we will go deep in other topics so don’t miss the chance to come and tell us your opinion!!

See you next Wednesday for a new and innovative Open Cafè!!
