About this Event

Please note this event is now fully booked, so put your name on the waiting list to be notified if a ticket becomes available (or for a second event, which we are considering running due to demand)!

We are not funded for any of this work so if you know of any supporters who may be interested in helping us to run another workshop to accommodate our waiting list, or provide ongoing support to those who might want to experiment with the model, then please do get in touch at theodora@xenia.org.uk.

Xenia brings together women from all cultures and backgrounds to connect with each other, share experiences, and practise English through creative workshops.

It began in 2016 as part of Antiuniversity Now at Hackney Museum, as an experiment for English-learning women and English-speaking women to connect and create together. From this one-off event we were asked to come back again and again by participants and it has since grown into a weekly workshop, where we welcome regulars and new faces from over 50 countries.

We want to share Xenia's model to inform practice and support you to hold your own experiment in your local community - inspired by what we've already learned about what can really work.

At this workshop you will:

  • learn about Xenia's story, vision, and impact,
  • learn about our non-hierarchical model,
  • take part in a Xenia taster session
  • and come away with practical tips on how to hold your own event.

This event is open to anyone (of any gender) who wants to learn from what we're doing, supporting people who might not otherwise meet to connect through meaningful conversations. You may be interested in holding your own event, incorporating Xenia sessions into your organisation's existing activities, or even starting up a local Xenia - everyone is welcome!

This event is open to people of all genders and backgrounds. If you have barriers to attending (e.g. childcare or cost of travel) please get in touch with us.

Take a look at our website for more information about Xenia and please get in touch if you have any questions.

We can't wait to see you there!
