The Team of the In­ter­cul­tur­al Women's and Meet­ing Center in Kon­rad­str. 62 presents it­self and the pro­ject

The FiA - the In­ter­cul­tur­al Women's and Meet­ing Center in Kon­rad­str. 62 is a pro­ject of the "Soziok­ul­turelles Zen­trum Frauen­kul­tur Leipzig".
Frauen­kul­tur Leipzig is an open place for so­cial com­mu­nic­a­tion, en­coun­ters and ex­changes between people - in­tergen­er­a­tion­ally, demo­crat­ic­ally and par­ti­cip­a­tion-ori­ented. Art and cul­ture are the best means to en­able par­ti­cip­a­tion in pub­lic life for all in­ter­ested parties.
The corner­stones of the so­ciocul­tur­al work of the women's cul­ture Leipzig have been equal­ity, demo­cracy, tol­er­ance, in­teg­ra­tion and po­s­i­tion­ing against ra­cism and dis­crim­in­a­tion for more than 26 years, whereby the gender-ori­ented as­pect is an im­port­ant com­pon­ent.
The range of of­fers ranges from so­ciocul­tur­al pro­jects, school pro­jects, so­cial ped­ago­gic­al activ­it­ies, in­ter­cul­tur­al open-minded girls' en­coun­ters, women's meet­ing cen­ters in the east, events of all art genres, edu­ca­tion sem­inars and courses.

Frauen­kul­tur Leipzig is the meet­ing place for a wide range of work groups, AG Frauen­pro­jekte Leipzig City-coun­try, queer-fem­in­ist groups and mi­grant women of dif­fer­ent lin­guist­ic areas. Frauen­kul­tur Leipzig stands for a peace­ful com­munity of all people, in which every form of na­tion­al­ism and fun­da­ment­al­ism has no place.
The events at the So­ciocul­tur­al Center for Women's Cul­ture in Wind­scheidstr. 51 are open to all people. The in­ter­cul­tur­al girls' meet­ing MiO and the In­ter­cul­tur­al Women's Center are gender-spe­cif­ic places. They are ex­clus­ively open to girls and women.

Why is there the In­ter­cul­tur­al Women's and Meet­ing Center FiA?
Espe­cially women from other cul­tur­al areas need op­por­tun­it­ies for lin­guist­ic and so­cial com­mu­nic­a­tion, sup­port and strength­en­ing - as well as ne­ces­sar­ily places of (cul­tur­al) learn­ing, in­form­a­tion and know­ledge trans­fer, also about the labor mar­ket situ­ation, gain­ful em­ploy­ment and ne­ces­sary pro­fes­sion­al qual­i­fic­a­tions.
The best in­teg­ra­tion is an act­ive par­ti­cip­a­tion in pub­lic so­cial life through work. In­form­a­tion on em­ploy­ment, work and train­ing op­por­tun­it­ies are im­port­ant pi­on­eer­ing as­pects. This af­fects both women and men alike, with women need­ing gender-spe­cif­ic sup­port for vari­ous reas­ons (often child-re­lated).
The In­ter­cul­tur­al Women's and Meet­ing Center FiA would like to strengthen and ac­com­pany women in these ways. The FiA team es­pe­cially in­vites women with a mi­gra­tion back­ground to par­ti­cip­ate in the FiA of­fers.
