Do you want to do EVS in Berlin at the international Loesje office?

We are looking for two creative and motivated people to do European Voluntary Service (EVS) at the international Loesje office in Berlin for 12 months. EVS is a project of the European Commission and it means you can live for free in Berlin, do society-committed work and enjoy life, if you are under 30. Regulations you can read below.

How to improve the web presence of Loesje International?

Missed the board meeting and assembly? Interested in the discussed topics? Do you want to know more about our plans? Would you like to share also your ideas about Loesje's future?

We're happy to inform you that we are going to publish short summaries about the meeting, so you will have the chance to take part in it virtually and share your comments with us.

The NEW Loesje handbook is here!

All you ever needed to know (or at least, a good start) about how to start up your own Loesje group, how to make creative text writing, final editing and lay out, you can find here. Read it online or print it out below.

If you want to translate the handbook into your language, just email us and she will give you more information! The handbook will soon be available in Polish, Spanish and Hebrew. Volunteers for translations into other languages very welcome!

Time to register for Youth Critical Media Literacy Training

The idea of the international training is to train 24 already experienced participants in arts, media and communication, using workshops to create a common understanding of the festival concepts and create the group work atmosphere, and practical »field work«, with an accent on peer to peer education and communication work. The training and its participants will at the same time be the media team of the Oddstream festival, creating synergies with it, and report from it, partly in collaboration with local media.

Reflections on Loesje as a girl

Today, Loesje International is having a text writing workshop on the theme of feminism. In the Poster Archive, you can find an already existing series on the subject. The way people deal with this day, sure does create a debate. One day a year, it exposes how gender-norms are questioned or if they are questioned at all. Here is an article related to the subject of Loesje addressed as a girl. Leave your comments and reactions for further debate. This is possible today and the rest of the year.
