Other women's flowers reunion: friendship edition

During its more than two years of life, other women's flowers was a space to share, discuss and discover literature written by women. Initiated by Carla Besora, it was open to everyone but with a steady core of regulars. The biweekly meetings became a fertile ground for collaboration, shared experiences and friendships.

Today, in the frame of Elien Ronse's residency at Kunsthal, the book-club comes together to reflect on the meanings of friendship through texts, a collective meal and relaxed (but passionate) discussions.

For this friendly edition, we invite you to join us with a text you would like to share (a poem a friend of yours read to you once, a song that you sang together while cycling in the rain, a novel that captured the mystery of friendship love...).

Together we will put together a meal to share, so please bring something to eat that relates to friendship in some way (your dear friend's favourite meal, something you ate together when you were teens, that snack you always steal from their pantry...)

We look forward to an evening of friendship stories, literary discoveries and perhaps new potential friendships.

Please reserve a spot if you would like to join, places are limited.
