· ABOUT ·
Each month, a group of women* will meet in the lounge of be’kech to talk about stories that matter to women*’s lives, bodies and souls. They will meet and share with you what is on their minds in an open, raw, honest, real and judgement-free way.
The idea started when the two friends Rasha Hilwi and Abir Ghattas decided to share their stories with other women* and to create a public yet safe space. This space was offered by Louna Sbou and Nina Martin, the founders of be’kech.
In Arabic, Persian and Turkish, “hammam” translates to “bath”. It implies a public space where women* (and also men*, separately) go to cleanse and relax. In addition, it has also been a safe space to talk about almost everything.
We wanted to bring the concept of “Hammam” or “Hamam” to the stage, and to open it up to the public as a monthly interactive talk-show by and for women*. We aim to reclaim a public space and to make it safe for women* from marginalized communities to speak out, share and support each other.
PS: “By including the asterisk in women*, we want to draw attention to our understanding of gender as a social construct and to the fact that all genders are emphatically welcome to Hammam Talks”.
Hosted by Rasha Hilwi and Abir Ghattas.
