Upcoming

Accessible Arts Club

Get creative in a low pressure environment! Join us to work on your own art projects. We will provide basic materials, inspiration and optional prompts. Contact Thea for more information.

Art Guild

Art Guild is the group for AWCZ art viewers and doers, art lovers and learners. We offer a variety of art related activities including exhibit tours, gallery and studio visits, sketching, and photography. Come explore the Zurich art scene, see some very diverse and intriguing art, and have coffee and a chat with us about it. Friends and family are welcome too.

For more information, please contact Art Guild.

Writers Group

In the AWCZ Writers Group, we don't just talk about writing—we write. Short stories, poetry, screenplays, novels: our members are working in all of these genres and more. We offer a supportive atmosphere for women writers working at all levels. Some of us are published writers, and others are just getting started.

We meet at the AWCZ Clubhouse, usually on the third Thursday of the month from 13:30-15:30, to share our work and explore topics in writing and publishing. During COVID restrictions, we are meeting weekly online.

Following our discussion period and coffee break (of course, there is coffee!), members present their current work. Writers looking for first readers for their projects can also request in-depth reviews and critiques from fellow members.

We write in English, but our life histories are as varied as our home countries. We're young and old; we're stay-at-home moms and successful professionals. We are all writers.

Please contact us for more details.


History Buffs

Do you enjoy learning about history through books, documentaries or museums? If so, the AWCZ History Buffs' Club is for you!

We will have a monthly discussion on a predetermined book or documentary, or both. When we are able to move about safely and freely, we will also have a once a month trip to a museum or exhibition about the complexity of our past. We meet the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 13:00 - 15:00.

Keep an eye out for more information on our website and social media. Meeting times to be determined by the group.

If you would like to be added to the email list, please contact Lyla.

EXCURSIONS

Explore Switzerland with us! We venture out to visit different parts of this country we now call home.

To appeal to a variety of tastes and interests, we vary our regions, activities, events, and days for our destinations. Come enjoy this beautiful place with us and see all it has to offer. We visit festivals, celebrations, exhibits, and traditions unique to Switzerland – the planning is more fun with friends!

Last minute adventures are posted on the private AWCZ Facebook page.

If you are interested or would like to participate, please contact Evi, Dana, and Sharon


Monday at the Movies — Lights, Camera, Action!

Jeanette and Karen invite you to join them on a Monday afternoon to watch a new film, in English, of their choice or yours – how often depends on the films on offer. Cost is usually CHF 14, but can vary. In addition to Mondays we have occasional Ladies’ Nights at the Corso, summer open air cinema, and most recently Opera or Ballet on the big screen live from London.

To ensure you hear about all our movie excursions, please contact Jeanette. During COVID restriction times when we cannot meet in person, we share viewing ideas and recommendations on our private WhatsApp group.


Living In Zurich

This group brings together established Zurich residents with folks new to the area, even if you aren't yet a member. We offer informal presentations on topics relevant to living in Zurich with plenty of time for questions and discussions.

Our membership remembers the challenges of being new in town and wants to pay forward the help we were all given. Come ask your questions and bring suggestions for future discussion topics. Everyone's welcome, but after attending a maximum of three Club events, we invite you to become a member and enjoy the full benefits.

Contact Living In Zurich for details on upcoming dates and topics.
