Naja, just like last week, we are suggesting some nice activities to do if you are not such a big fan of football. This weekend is all about inclusion and Leipzig being an open city especially to refugees. On Sunday the second Brückenfest Willkommen in Leipzig will take place. I will actually be there, will be selling some yummy food. Come say hi! Plus, the solstice (as much as we get of daylight for the year) is coming up… so take the opportunity to prolong your fun!
► Noches Latinas in BeyerHaus
Spanish course and salsa classes are waiting for you like every Thursday. Do I still need to post this one?
With the Bristish referendum taking place next Thursday (yes in the UK they have the weird habit of voting on Thursdays), the initiative of the Greens is quite welcome. The discussion will be in German though.
Where: Felsenkeller Leipzig
Does listening to jazz music under the full moon sound better than watching the Spain vs. Turkey match? Then off you go to Plagwitz!
► Flohmarkt – Flea Market at Scheibenholz Racecourse
Entrance fee €1/person, children up to 12 yeard old enter for free. More info (in German)
► Hand in Hand gegen Rassismus Leipzig A Human Chain against racism
I highly recommend this event. Last September, Sachsenbrücke really became a place of intercultural exchange with people from all over the place. A place of inclusion. There will be music, food and a couple of info stands. I will be making food there so come say hi!
Where: Connie Island
(Koburger Str. 3)
There will be a series of workshops on deejaying, graffiti, rap and skating. Different DJs will provide a full entertainment program.
► Fete de la musique
So in the 1980’s when Jack Lang was French minister of culture, he had the brilliant idea of inventing this music day. It is actually quite big in France and Belgium but it is celebrated all over the world, heavily promoted by the French Institute. Here is the program of the day, with concerts all over the place. Enjoy the longest day of the year!
