Spouse Community Aarhus Update

        


Tak for sidst!

We’re recovering from a busy week with great turn-outs for our Paint Bar Night Out and TGIF with Spouse Community events! At Paint Bar we each created our very own Aarhus skyline painting while enjoying delicious wine from SMAGFØRST Trøjborg – many thanks to our instructor Roser, friendly barman Kasper, and to Morten for giving our members a special discount price to take part! Our TGIF event saw around 50 members, their partners, and newcomers gather at Hantwerk to mingle over microbrews and more great wine! We have a full program planned until the Christmas break, so we’re looking forward to seeing you all soon! (Photos by Zane Hartmane)





Insta-Takeover from Alicia!

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 Alicia is sharing a week in her life and how she has made Aarhus her home! Follow her journey at @spousecommunityaarhus or www.instagram.com/spousecommunityaarhus

If you’re a member who’d like to do an Insta-Takeover, we’d love to hear from you: info@spousecommunityaarhus.dk

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!
 

Event highlight: Transforming Challenges Into Opportunities – A Mindful Approach

The spouse/expat life can be challenging at times. After the ‘honeymoon’ when everything is new and exciting, challenges and frustrations can start to come up. If you've felt this, you are not alone. Together, under the guidance of mindfulness teacher and professional coach, Carmen Manea, we will explore how, through a mindfulness approach, we can look at these challenges from different perspectives, and how we can transform them into opportunities. You will learn new skills, habits and practices that can bring you more joy and fulfilment.

This is an adults-only event on Thursday, November 23 at Dokk1. It is FREE for Spouse Community Aarhus members, and 50kr for non-members. There is a limited number of places for this event, sign up here to secure your place.

Become a member

We’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.
