Charity Event

Brief Introduction

My name is Jasmin and I'm the main organsier of the Charity Event. I am a trainee at the European Commission as well as an active member in the EC Dance Subcommittee organised by women at the Commission. Participating in this inspiring and encouraging Subcommittee as well as - where possible - cooperating with other creative and devoted  EC Subcommittees (Culture, Socialist, Sustainability, Europeans of Colour, etc.) shall create synergies and make this Charity Event a shared success.

WHAT is the event about?

The Charity Event is a cultural event full of entertainment (art, dance, music & comedy) to raise money for good causes (women and equality) supporting two NGOs in particular:

 

 

"The European Women Lobby"

WHO is invited?

Everyone's welcome! As a trainee from the European Commission, I warmly invite other trainees as well as trainee colleagues from the European Parliament and friends from NGOs incl. the "European Women Lobby" and "Refugees got Talent". The event shall be open and inclusive - so feel free to spread the word and to bring your friends along!

Background information reg. the "Orienatl Dance" workshop: Oriental dance for beginners - “Finding joy as a woman in dance!” - An intensive introduction to the basic movements in oriental dance.
 

This workshop welcomes everyone who has always wanted to explore the very feminine and sensual movements of oriental dance. I'd like to address with this workshop all women out there - no matter what their age is, no matter if they have prior knowledge of dancing or not - Feel invited to come around and to give it a try!

Allocation of funds

MAIN AIM

The Charity Event is in support of Women and Equality and any topics related to this such as diversity, for example. As listed above, donations made will go to the NGOs, the "European Women Lobby" and (a female artist from) "Refugees got Talent".

alt

The European Women Lobby

Brief introduction to the NGO: The European Women’s Lobby (EWL) brings together the women’s movement in Europe to influence the general public and European Institutions in support of women’s human rights and equality between women and men.

alt

How your donations can make a change: Donations made will be used to fund campaigns such as the popular 50/50 campaign which currently aims at getting more female MEPs into the European Parliament ahead of the European elections next year. You can find our more here: https://www.womenlobby.org 

alt

 

Refugees got Talent 

Brief introduction to the NGO: "Refugees got Talent" helps young refugees to improve their talents, allowing them to express themselves and to communicate with their new country and the rest of the world. The NGO provides refugees with a workplace and material to practice their art in Brussels. Visit their Facebook page to find out more here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/refugeesgottalent/about/?ref=page_internal 

alt

How your donations can make a change: The money raised could help young aspiring refugee artists to keep on improving their talents by providing the necessary work space and art material (paint, brushes, canvasses, etc.). The importance of having these basics readily available has also been stressed by the artist Ch Mia who now holds various art exhibitions here in Brussels thanks to this kind of support. 

alt

Please note last but not least that there will also be a raffle game for people on the spot at the evening where a piece of art from the female artist can be won. More information will follow at the place on the 17th of July.
