Wednesday Art Group (6:30pm-8:45pm, 15th June – 13th July)

A friendly supportive art class open to all. Each week we base the sessions around a particular medium for example this could be drawing,collage, painting or printing, to give a focus for the class. We aim to encourage a playful, experimental approach to being creative. Sessions are relaxed with people working in their own way and at their own pace.

There is no cost for the class only donations for tea and hot drinks, which are provided by Kebele. Check out our Facebook page “Kebele Art Class” to see some of the work that has been made.

5th May Rat Attack benefit

**Three Course Vegan Meal & Film Screening of ‘Folkbildningsterror’**

dinner from 6.30pm, film at 8pm

Kebele, 14 Robertson Road, Easton, Bristol

Donations (pay what you can afford)

Help us raise money by eating three courses of appetising vegan food and watching a queer DIY musical!

Menu:

Sweetcorn and coconut soup

Tacos, wedges and salad

Apple and mixed berry pie with coconut cream

All the money we raise will be for the first ‘Rat Attack’, a gathering around animal liberation and radical ecology, which will be held in Marseilles this summer, July 25th–31st. There will be info about the gathering and how to get involved on the night.

After dinner there will be a film screening of… ‘FOLKBILDNINGSTERROR’, possibly the only propaganda musical film the queer-autonomous left has ever produced!

Folkbildningsterror (roughly: popular education terror) tells the story of a group of people and a hare who are angry with neo-liberal developments in Sweden. It is a punk-spectacle of songs, choreography and flash mobs dealing with important political issues of our time, such as immigration, social exclusion, animal liberation and inequitable health systems, all delivered with a touch of self-irony.

The film is in Swedish with English subtitles. Content Warning: the film contains violence and sex scenes (BDSM, Kink, Fetish), also a lot of nudity!

Kebele is wheelchair accessible. If you have mobility issues and need help getting to/ from the event, or have any other accessibility issues, please contact us and we will do our best to help.

No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
