Agenda Website design - EF

We kindly invite you to the Espace Fxmme info day on the 21st of September in Globe Aroma. This event aims to introduce Globe Aroma to women with a newcomer’s background* who might have an interest in artistic & creative practices. 

We would like to invite you to join us on the 21st so that we can get to know each other, participate in creative workshops and share a meal together.

* During Espace Fxmme days we strictly invite only women, in this way we can create a safe and comfortable environment where we host creative women.

11-12h30h: Dance workshop with Massinda Zinga
12h30-14h: Lunch & exploring the Globe Aroma space

20h: The end


  • You can come with a group of women from your center, but women can also come individually. 
  • Women can decide to come the whole day, or – when it’s not possible due to other obligations – only join for the morning, or only in the afternoon, or only at night. We try to be flexible and adapt to everybody’s rhythm.
  • Women can bring their children.
  • Women who are not available Thursday 21st (but interested in Espace Fxmme) are of course welcome one of the next Thursdays. We’ll host them individually and explain how we work. Globe Aroma will be open for women who are interested in pursuing individual artistic projects (such as painting, sewing, jewellery making, cooking…) using material that is provided by Globe Aroma. Those who couldn’t come on Thursday 21st will still be able to do so simply by visiting any other day or by contacting us.

We kindly ask you to confirm your presence ahead of time and to share the approximate number of women who will be attending the event. (We totally understand that this is not so easy to plan, so let us also know if it’s not possible to confirm in advance.) As said before, it’s not mandatory to attend the full day but it would also be appreciated if you could tell us when is a suitable time for you to visit.
