12:00 – 16:00

The Indonesian word “nongkrong” roughly translates to hanging out or chilling with friends in an easy-going setting. This sets the tone for the Queer Programme, dedicated to create safer and accessible spaces for everyone, with a special focus on the queer Asian community– spaces to unwind, connect, and to be authentic. To maintain the easy-going spirit of nongkrong, we welcome everyone to join and leave at their leisure. The activities, except for the tai-chi workshop, overlap, allowing you to relish the space with a variety of experiences. Tea and snacks are on the house. 

Practical information:
Date: Sunday 10 March
Time: 12:00-16:00
Location: SK4 in Studio/K is wheelchair accessible.
Free entry. No need to sign up
