Lymy Aperitivo 9: Querq

Image behind text: Tuisku Lehto

TL;DR: Come hang out and listen to a short presentation and discussion with Querq over drinks this Friday (October 11) at 6-9pm (main program starts already at 6:30).


Lymy continues its series of monthly Aperitivo nights. We gather once a month to meet each other and enjoy some drinks and interesting conversation. Start your weekend with us at Lymy! Cash is queen. โ™ฅ

In our fall aperitivos we will be focusing on spaces. Our first aperitivo is with the collective behind Querq: โ€œa quirky cultural space at Nilsiรคnkatu 10, Helsinki … [that] focuses on exploring intimacy, along with artistic expression, sex positivity and personal development.โ€ โ€œWith radical kindness at [their] core, [they] aim to unravel taboos and stigmas with feminist, queer, spiritual and critical approaches.โ€

We have given them the following questions as suggestions for what we might be interested in thinking about together with them on Friday and beyond: What are the political implications of having a space? How does having a space affect the collective? What are some challenges with having and maintaining a space and how do you deal with them? What made you decide to get a space?

The evening will consist of a very short introduction by us (starting at 6:30), a presentation by our guests (between 20-50 min) and some discussion followed by hanging out in a more informal setting till 9.

You are warmly welcome to the ninth Lymy Aperitivo to hear more from and about Querq and spend a wonderful evening together!
