Spouse Community Update
Last Friday was a big one for Spouse Community, we kicked off the day with our largest Monthly Coffee Morning crowd yet (around 40 of us packed out the Dome of Visions), and finished it off at the Aarhus City Welcome event at Dokk1 where we spread the word about Spouse Community, membership and all our latest happenings. Huge thanks to our wonderful members for their continual support of our events, and a special shout out to all the new friendly faces we met – we’re looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
Tak for sidst!
Insta-Takeover from Kate!Over on our Instagram we are giving the world a peek into the lives of spouses in Aarhus! Every few weeks one of our members will takeover our Instagram to share everything from their daily lives, to hidden gems around the city. We have such a diverse membership, and everyone experiences Aarhus differently – so this is a great chance to see how others have made this city their home.
Currently Kate is sharing a week in her life – including some of her favourite spots around town! Follow her journey at @spousecommunityaarhus.
If you’d like to do an Insta-Takeover, we’d love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org
Even if you’re not doing a Takeover, you can still join our Insta-community, just tag your posts with #spouselifeinaarhus to showcase your life in Aarhus!
Become a memberWe’d love you to join us! Spouse Community Aarhus is a community of enthusiastic international spouses and accompanying partners from all over the world that have settled in Aarhus and made this city our home. All spouses can become a member of Spouse Community Aarhus, whether you or your partner are internationals or Danes. We are lucky enough to have members of many ages and nationalities, both men and women, and some working or volunteering in Aarhus.
We are a non-profit volunteer-based organisation and our nominal membership fee of 100kr per year (that’s about the price of two coffees!) goes directly back into putting on our events - so the more members we have, the more awesome events!
As a member you’ll also receive invitations to all our Spouse Community Aarhus events which are free to members (or in the instance there is an entry fee or ticket needed, we negotiate the best price possible for our members), and access to our members-only Facebook forum which is a place to connect with members, ask questions and seek advice, and share events and articles. Non-members are also welcome to attend our events, however we usually ask for a 50kr fee per event - so with membership only 100kr per year, it’s worth signing up.
