Upcoming Events

Join us for the March Monthly Meeting, which will take place on International Women's Day, Thursday, March 8th at La Misericordia church in Piazza Porta Castiglione. A special, exceptional event, this meeting is open to the public - help spread the word! In an effort to create more awareness about women's issues in developing countries, the event will be in the format of a mini film festival where GVC, a Bologna-based NGO whose work extends internationally, will present two documentaries highlighting women in Tunisia entitled Eco de Femmes and Blooms in the Concrete (see here for description). The screening will be followed by Nada Ziwawi, a woman GVC project manager connected to the films, presenting and discussing her experience. Registration and aperitivo will begin at 7pm with the documentary screening starting at 7:30pm. In collaboration with GVC and generous sponsors, the film festival will be open to the public in keeping with its goal to broaden public awareness of these issues - please talk it up and bring your friends (both male and female). A suggested donation of 5 euros is encouraged to help GVC continue fulfilling women’s projects around the world. This event represents an exception to our usual day for meeting, the 3rd Thursday of the month, as it coincides with the day dedicated internationally to women and women's issues, on a Thursday!
