Spouse Community Update - Week 32

A Summer to Remember!

 


All of us have been making the most of the lovely summer days in Aarhus. We at Spouse Community also cashed on the sunny weather and various activities around the city. To round off the series of summer pop-up events, our members, Kym and Joanna organized two popup events in the city. We had a nice time catching up at the food market outside of Ridehuset while the Aarhus Jazz Orchestra was playing and we also made a trip to AroS Museum. Many thanks for bringing us all together by organizing these events. We are now planning exciting events for the rest of the year.

Become a member and gain access to a plethora of fun events, workshops and activities for free or discounted rates. It costs just 100kr per year. Learn more and become a member here. If you’re a Spouse Community member with an idea for a project or event you’d like to work on, please get in touch on info@spousecommunityaarhus.dk , we’d love to hear from you!
 

What is a Spouse? Project

We at Spouse Community Aarhus consider ourselves as international individuals, who have fearlessly entered the Danish culture with the hope of thriving in Aarhus alongside our partners. Our 'What Is A Spouse?' project was launched at our one-year anniversary. The project is a compilation of inspiring stories from ‘spouses’ like you who have done just that. Each month we’ll bring you a new experience from spouses who have made Aarhus their home. For this month, read about Irena, a 29-year-old from Ukraine who met her Danish husband in 2012 and decided to settle in Denmark. She channelled her passion to start the Creative Women’s Club. She has shared her experience of settling and exploring various opportunities in Aarhus. Read more by clicking here
