FEMINIST TRAUMA HEALING AND PERSONAL SAFETY CAMPS

SIHANET PERSONAL SAFETY CAMP AUGUST 2019

Since our first personal safety camp in November 2015, we have hosted over 70 successful camps around Uganda and East Africa for demographics such as sex workers, differently-abled women, corporate workers, female vendors, adolescents (girls and boys), university women and women who identify as lesbian, bisexual and queer.

Feminist Utopia is curated as an oasis from the realities and consequences of living in an unbalanced, violent and patriarchal world. We build an oppression-free city based on feminist ideology, with engaging installation art sourced from local artists.

This project addresses themes of promotion of gender equality, feminist movement building and community healing of psychological traumas that have accumulated due to harmful, patriarchal practices. Our goal is to facilitate joy, healing and empowerment of all.

FitcliqueAfrica hosts personal safety camps within Feminist Utopia, with the following activities: Guided Engagement of Feminist Utopia Installation, Co-creation of art, Engaging Group discussions, Afrikan Yoga & Meditation, Physical and Emotional Self-Defense, Peertherapy and an intersectional Feminist dance party at the end!

Each camp is designed to holistically engage up to 100 participants for 8 hours within the framework of our Feminist Utopia installation and FitcliqueAfrica’s personal safety curriculum.
