Afghan Women Small Spaces Café

18 November, 2020, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This is an online event.

Join women from the Afghanistan and Central Asian Association, legal researchers from Royal Holloway, University of London, and others, over Afghan tea and cake to learn about human rights law’s purpose, problems and potential.

Universal dignity, equality and rights will be connected to our own experiences through artwork, sewing and discussions between participants, by exploring what everyday habits and material objects tell us about ourselves and each other. Professor Jill Marshall, a human rights specialist, will discuss aspects of French author Georges Perec’s work including his questioning of our everyday habits and things around us and connect this to human rights. ‘Perec’ packs of paper, pens, sewing kits and open questions will be provided to those who can attend in person – subject to COVID19 regulations – and for others via Zoom or phone, open questions and a summary of some issues will be sent digitally. Otherwise, a sewing needle, some thread and a small piece of material and or a pen and paper is all that is needed.

The café will be online and potentially for a small group at ACAA’s community hub in Feltham in London.

No sewing or art expertise required. A list of necessary materials will be circulated two weeks before the event
