Yallah Sabaya, meaning in Arabic ‘Come ladies! Enjoy yourselves!’, is a special evening just for women, an evening where dance and music connect women from around the world.

All women, from every country or culture, are welcome to meet, chat and dance. Yallah Sabaya is organized by Welkom in Utrecht, De Voorkamer, and BAK, basis voor actuele kunst and Yallah Yallah.

As this is a night for you to relax and enjoy we ask not to bring children, but your female friends very welcome.

Workshop

Stitching, Writing, Singing

Community Portal hosts...

In all continents, people have built matriarchal cosmologies sustained by complex rituals. In the advent of main modern religions and after centuries of colonizing invasions, the goddesses of antiquity were suppressed by the patriarchal structures that consolidated our era. However, they found ways to speak to us in the language of patterns, melodies, and poems. This workshop uses the voice as a method to reveal the presence of goddesses.
