The School of Transnational Organizing's community of Berlin-based migrant workers, community organizers, activists, artists, and academics is invited to a community gathering over good food, end-of-year storytelling, and karaoke!

Participants are warmly invited to...

  • Add Christmas and Winter songs from all across the world to our »Sound of Resistance« Open Spotify Playlist to be played at the event;
  • Contribute soul food from back home to the international buffet made by fellow Berliners from around the world (drinks must be purchased at the Café at your own charge);
  • Bring a Secret Santa gift for a stranger from our community (it should not be purchased, but something from your personal possessions that you would like to give as a life companion to another person);
  • Share your stories about this year's experiences and victories that we appreciate and want to be celebrated;
  • If you like, sing a song at the Karaoke session, be at a Christmas carol, a song from back home which makes you feel you belong, or a powerful resistance evergreen – all under the motto »Sing Your Struggle!«;
