The Knowledge is an ongoing workshop for (re)searching and gathering women’s stories, for creating and sharing feminist resources through engaging women and their struggles within their communities in Lebanon.
Organisers have merged all their past experiences in collective grassroots organising and working within more institutionalised forms of activism, in activist writing and in scholarly research, and their experiences working in different artistic and media projects, in order to create this feminist workshop.
The team found each other in activist spaces, through their passion for stories and histories of women no one was paying attention to, in order to present them in new and old forms. The dream of Knowledge Workshop started in 2010 and it has been growing with them ever since. Officially born in 2015 and launched in 2016, it undertakes the work of integrating community organising with re-searching, storytelling, teaching and learning with three primary tracks building on the work of Sawt al Niswa : the Feminist Library, the Storytellers Project, and the Feminist School.
