Come by for a lovely dinner and then check out the awesome workshop on Philosophy and Activism

>>> CLICK HERE TO RESERVE YOUR PLATE <<<

Have you ever looked at the world and felt outraged or disappointed at how we handle some aspects of our society? And have you asked yourself what could you do to bring about some much-needed change? Should you bring the topic at the dinner table, or should you create massive disruption on the streets? Perhaps you’ve wondered if you should start by changing yourself or if it would be best to target powerful individuals or institutions. What is the most effective way to build a better world for everyone? Is there a right or wrong when it comes to different tactics of resistance?

In this workshop, we’ll hear stories about resistance across the world and discuss together questions around different tactics for bringing about change in our communities and the world at large. Come prepared to share your own story, or simply to listen to other people’s stories and reflect on your own.

This workshop is led by Patyt Reyes, PhD candidate in Political Philosophy of Technology at the University of Twente, and member of Extinction Rebellion Twente.

Leap Day Dinner: 12€

Chef: Kashyap

MENU:

NoMeatBalls (Sweden)

Bisi Bele Bath (Indian)
Pear Salad (Dutch)

Sachlav (Middle East)

Kungens Män started out in 2012 in Stockholm, Sweden, when a bunch of good friends decided to bring some instruments when hanging out. The random jam sessions became more and more regular and soon Kungens Män started recording it all, completely unfiltered and without safety nets. The music soon found its way to the internet and a buzz occurred, connecting with listeners all over the globe.


The inspiration comes from the drone, the rattle of the loose screw, the circuit failure of the effects, the phatness of the moog and from the very diverse wiring of a bunch of middle aged Swedish freaks. Kungens Män never plan the next musical move – it presents itself. Sometimes the costume sewn is really ugly, but somehow there’s always room for the sublime as you turn it inside out.
