Friday, 8 March is International Women’s Day. The Eindhoven library is planning an exciting programme – ‘Everyone’s a hero!’ – for women. This is being done in cooperation with the Dutch non-profit organisation, Women Inc’s, ambassador Carien Kirkels.
The speakers will be Maleka Bent Jamaa of The Female Factory and Ineke Hurkmans, from the Jump Movement. Maleka has been working with women from all walks of life for over 20 years. It is her mission to show women that they already possess all of the power and wisdom they need. As an empowerment-coach and speaker, focussing on women, it is Maleka’s goal to create awareness and connection.
Ineke Hurkmans will get people to ‘Jump’. This is an easy, accessible method of conversation that helps move people towards their own or collective ambitions. Participants will ‘jump together’. Jessica Bartels, Eindhoven’s City Poet of Eindhoven, will also be there to present some of her poems and showcase her poetry skills.
The programme starts with a vegetarian meal at 18:00. This will cost €12,50 and people will need to register seperately for this. Tickets for the ‘Everyone’s a Hero’ event cost €3, while a meal and event combo is €15. Tickets are available here. The evening begins officially at 18:45 and will end at 22:00.
This event will be in Dutch but is also open for non-Dutch speakers. The hand-out of the reading and ‘Jump’ exercises will be available in English.
