Lymy Visits Copenhagen on April 25

If you happen to be in Copenhagen on April 25, we’ll be giving a presentation at YNKB at 5 pm. More info at:

Kammerater fra Helsinki er på besøg i København og vi har inviteret dem til at fortælle os om deres kollektive sted kaldet Lymy og deres forsøg på at finde en mellemvej mellem det åbne i aktivistmiljøet og følelsen af at dele et fælles liv. Vi inviterer alle der har noget på hjertet i diskussionen af den slags ting til at komme denne fredag d. 26. april i YNKB, Baldersgade 70 kl. 17-19.

Præsentation og diskussion vil foregå på Engelsk.

Se forneden hvad Lymy handler om.


Comrades from Helsinki are visiting Copenhagen and we’ve invited them to tell us about their attempt to establish a collective space where friends in struggle can both open themselves to the world while sharing a life in common. We invite anyone who has a stake in discussing these things to join us this evening Friday the 26th at YNKB, Baldersgade 70 at XX-XX [CLOCK]

Presentation and discussion will be in English.

This is how our friends describe the project:

“Lymy is a space in Helsinki that we rented together as an initial experiment in shaping a life in common with friends and comrades. We use the space to meet each other and others, eat together, do paid and unpaid work, study, share skills, accumulate resources, have fun and organize. Out of all the questions we could ask ourselves today we feel that the one that really connects us with our immediate situation is: what does shared life look like, here and now?

We strive towards something that would bridge the disparate moments of belonging we experience in different projects and struggles into one continuous terrain. A terrain we can inhabit without being torn between the two feelings that dominate our lives: anxiety (“something, anything must be done”) and apathy (“nothing can be done”). We want to transform the prevailing sadness altered with moments of individual happiness into collective joy that gives us strength. There will never be a better or worse time to start building new forms of life in common.

In April 2019 we started a process in order to define a new strategy for Lymy. We work on the strategy based on four themes that have been defining Lymy in the years 2015-2019: ethics, affects, life in common and territoriality. In Copenhagen, we will give an introduction to the first steps in defining our strategical guidelines.

We wholeheartedly invite you to participate in the discussion that we hope both could develop these strategic thoughts and open up for a wider discussion on the common ground between Lymy and similar projects in Copenhagen!”
