Thanks to the help from the community space Die Lernwerkstatt, femLENS’ first Berlin workshop happened on March 6th. Our Berlin group is a very diverse one! Five women from four different countries and various professions attended: two from Mexico, one from Columbia, one from Syria and one from Austria; a mother, a chef, a singer, a student, and a hotel administrator! We’re happy to meet these women and spend time together discovering documentary photography, storytelling, techniques and their mobile phone cameras. Even when daycare is not available because 8 March is now a day off in Germany to celebrate women, we came together to learn and to talk about stories they may have. Thanks @die_lernwerkstatt for hosting us!

Monday is a big day for femLENS, we’re launching a crowdfunding campaign to be able to organise our workshops in Gaza!
