Dagskrá sumarsins!

Góðgerðarfélagið okkar, Flottafólk, kynnir sumardagskrá sína fyrir börn og unglinga. Við erum með fótboltanámskeið með úkraínskum þjálfurum, tónlistarnámskeið fyrir yngstu börnin og skátanámskeið fyrir börn og unglinga á næstunni. Við höfum áhuga á fjölda þátttakenda á hverju námskeiði. Vinsamlegast skrifaðu athugasemd fyrir neðan "Fótbolti +1" / "Tónlist +1" / "Skátar +1" (+1 = fjöldi barna sem mæta)

Við munum kynna hvern viðburð fyrir sig í þessari viku. Eins og alltaf er Barnamiðstöðin okkar að Hátúni 2 opin mánudaga til föstudaga frá 10:00 til 15:00 þar sem börn geta leikið sér og fengið sér morgunmat, hádegismat og síðdegiskaffi.

Aðstaðan okkar í Neskirkju er líka opin eins og venjulega þar sem hægt er að nálgast föt, nálgast tölvur og hitta Úkraínumenn eða sjálfboðaliða sem eru hér til aðstoðar.

Félagsmiðstöðin, G8 að Aflagranda 40, opnar aftur eftir sumarið með frábærri dagskrá fyrir alla.

Playtime for kids on Iceland’s National Holiday

Kidarchy (Krakkaveldi) would like to invite Ukrainian children of all ages to come and play games with them on June 17th at Iðnó theater in Vonarstræti 3, downtown Reykjavík. The invitation is part of their takeover at Iðnó theater as part of the Reykjavík Arts Festival Programme of 2022.

Kidachy is a group of kids aged 7-13 who are organizing a whole day of fun and happenings as part of the Reykjavík Arts Festival Programme of 2022. The kids have been discussing how they can show support for the children who have had to flee Ukraine from war, and came up with the idea to have an hour of fun and games together to connect with them and make new friends. We hope the children and their parents will accept the kids’ invitation to come and have fun with us on June 17th, which is the Icelandic National Day! The games will be taking place inside the Iðnó theater from 16-17.

The Babushkas of Chernobyl

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, AT 6:45 PM

A STORY OF 3 UNLIKELY HEROINES IN THE MOST TOXIC PLACE ON EARTH…
 
In the radioactive Dead Zone surrounding Chernobyl’s Reactor No. 4, a defiant community of women scratches out an existence on some of the most toxic land on Earth. They share this hauntingly beautiful but lethal landscape with an assortment of interlopers—scientists, soldiers, and even ‘stalkers’—young thrill-seekers who sneak in to pursue post-apocalyptic video game-inspired fantasies. Why the film’s central characters, Hanna Zavorotyna, Maria Shovkuta, and Valentyna Ivanivna, chose to return after the disaster, defying the authorities and endangering their health, is a remarkable tale about the pull of home, the healing power of shaping one’s destiny and the subjective nature of risk.

In 1986, Chornobyl became the site of the greatest nuclear accident in history. An area the size of Luxemburg was contaminated and closed off, but in the years following, some of the residents returned to the exclusion zone and made it their home. At the end of February, Chornobyl again made headlines around the world when it was invaded by a Russian occupying force. The Russians are no longer there but now, at the 36th anniversary of the accident, it is time to look back at the tragic history of Chornobyl.

The programme is as follows:

  • 19.00 – Gunnar Þorri Pétursson, one of Iceland’s leading translators, will discuss and read from his translation of The Chernobyl Prayer by Nobel Prize winning author Svetlana Alexeivich.
  • 19.15 – Writer and historian Valur Gunnarsson will discuss developments in the exclusion zone after the accident and read from his best-selling book Bjarmalönd, written in Ukraine in 2020.
  • 19.30 – Screening of The Babushkas of Chornobyl.

Ukrainian Film Days

THURSDAY, MARCH 31, AT 7 PM – 9 PM

Join us for the fourth screening of Ukrainian cinematography masterpieces.
 
Since the Russian invasion on February 24, Mariupol has faced constant shelling leading to a humanitarian catastrophe. At the moment the city is besieged for over two weeks. The Russian troops do not allow humanitarian convoys into the besieged city, leaving about 300 000 civilians, around 3000 of whom are newborn babies, without food and medicine. At the time of writing, almost 20 000 civilians have been killed.
“Mariupol, I love you” from Takflix shows life in the city before the invasion. It consists of 4 short films made by Mariupol locals in 2017-2021. They are stories of everyday life, dreams, and relationships and how they were influenced by the first phase of the war in 2014.
In “Me and Mariupol” a Donetsk-born director Piotr Armianovski is talking to people in search of the Mariupol he remembers from his childhood. “Ma” by Maria Stoianova is a conversation between a mother and daughter created from amateur phone footage in the face of war. “Territory of empty windows” and “Diorama” by Mariupol-born Zoya Laktionova explore how the war has changed the face of the city.
The films are in Ukrainian and Russian, with English subtitles.
 
The event is organized by Support Ukraine Iceland in collaboration with Takflix and the University of Iceland.
Admission is free of charge and your donations are welcome. All raised funds will be donated directly to the Mariupol City Council.
The screening will take place in Veröld – the house of Vidgís (University of Iceland), auditorium VHV-023.
Please arrive before 19:00 to enter the building (the doors are locked from 19:00).

Sundlaugarferð

Hópferð í Árbæjarlaug. Sundlaugin er mjög fjölskylduvæn og með frábæru útsýni yfir Reykjavík. Krakkar eldri en 10 þurfa ekki umsjónarkennara fyrir fullorðna en sjálfboðaliðar munu koma með. Ef börnin eða foreldrarnir eiga ekki sundföt ennþá (við erum að vinna í að fá alla sundföt) mun sundlaugin lána sundföt og handklæði sér að kostnaðarlausu. Eftir að hafa skvett í sundlaugina mun ísbíllinn kíkja í heimsókn og gefa öllum börnunum ís.

Tími: Fimmtudagur 31. mars
Staður: Árbæjarlaug almenningslaug, Fylkisvegi 9, 110 Reykjavík

Rútur verða útvegaðar eftir áhuga svo vinsamlegast skráðu þig hér:
