About The Event
Our 4th Rising in Vienna is a very special one - for three reasons:
First- as we in Europe are facing the biggest wave of refugees since mor than 70 years - we decided to dedicate our rising 2016 to them - especially to women escaping war, the effects of climate change, sexual discrimination, persecution, and other female-specific escape basics.
Second - to be able to work more effectively also during the year - we now founded 2015 an organization called OBRA - 'One Billion Rising Austria - eine künstlerische Kampagne für ein Ende der Gewalt an Frauen und Mädchen' - we are cooperating with several organizations, such as Autonome Österreichische Frauenhäuser, Plattform 20000 Frauen, Frauenring, FZ, FeministAttac, Femme Fiscale, Frauenfilm and others.
Third - for this year event, we are lucky to cooperate with Tanzquartier Wien - TQW - the biggest center for contemporary dance in Austria - with workshops and the possibility to use their studios for the afterparty.
