10:00 – 12:00 Workshop  2 Migration (@ FDV – Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana)

This workshop is a collaboration between Hub Meeting and Svobodna Univerza (Free University). On this workshop we will look at how the crisis and austerity affect migrants and migrant’s rights, migrants’ participation in direct democracy, etc. Central questions here are: if and how migrants are involved in uprisings, mass mobilizations and self-organization processes? What has happened to the emerging forms of self-organization of migrants in uprisings?


12:30 – 14:30 Workshop 3 Knowledge (@ FDV – Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana)

This workshop is a collaboration between Hub Meeting and Svobodna Univerza (Free University). An examination of the struggles against the privatization of university and school system and the practices of self-formation. A central question will be: how does knowledge production relate to society in general?


17:00 – 19:00 Workshop 4 Women, the Crisis and (Radical) Social Care (@ SC Rog / Tiffany)

The idea is to discuss the specific ways in which women are affected by the crisis, gender-specific exploitation and how to build radical emancipation from below. Linking this to the formation of the group Insurgent (Women) Social Workers, which arose from recognising women’s perspective within the crisis and also the role of social work in advocating the Insurgence and adding forgotten/overlooked content to it. Focal point of the discussion then being how to radicalise the system of  (social) care, how to build alternative practices within the community (or why we believe all women are in a way social workers).

20:00 – Dinner and party @ SC Rog

20th (Ljubljana)

08:30 – 10:00 breakfast and coffee @ SC Rog

10:00 – 13:00 Workshop 5 The Perspective of Struggles in Europe (@ SC Rog)

Perspectives in the political process of struggles is a two part workshop. One part will focus on bringing in concrete practices of struggle such as building Blockupy Europe, common struggles in Europe, the Mediterranean, the Maghreb, and 15M. The other part will be a focused discussion on the meaning of, and practices of engagement in, a European social strike. We will also ask ourselves how this process takes us from welfare to commonfare?

14:00 – 16:00 Closing assembly The Constituent Process (@ SC Rog / Tabor Park)

The final assembly has a goal of putting emphasis on the crisis of representative politics and the possibilities for implanting the constituent process from below. Within this we will discuss how we get from mass mobilization to self-organization of needs, on local and transnational levels.

N.B All workshops are “works in progress” and reflect the general content of proposals and ideas we received. Keep sending ideas and consider the workshops as open discussions also on related themes. Therefore all spaces are subject to change!
