Spouse Community Update Week 49
Tak for Sidst! - Monthly Morning Coffee
Today, we had our Monthly Coffee Meeting at Lima Aarhus! It started off with a small group in this picture then grew to about 25 people by the end. That's the great thing about our get-togethers - you never know what great conversations you're going to have, and who you're going to meet! We hope that our newcomers will become our regulars ;)
Go Glocal with Spouse Community Aarhus!
We were nominated by Aarhus Makers and we're working on something to Go Glocal! In Spouse Community spirit, we have spouses making a video with spouses!
We would like to nominate TEDxAarhus for the Go Glocal People’s Choice Award! We love that it empowers volunteers, including internationals to take action in building something epic and meaningful in Aarhus!
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. Anyone 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 organization 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, a place to connect with members, ask questions and seek advice, and share events and articles.

Spouse Community is run by spouses, for spouses; so, if you have a passion or event idea you’d like to share with the community – we’d love to hear from you! Email us at email@example.com
Event Highlight: Festive Tapas Potluck
Sunday, December 9, 11:00 to 13:00
Aarhus Botanical Gardens, Peter Holms Vej, 8000 Aarhus C
Open to Spouse Community Members* and families only
Spouse Community invites you to our Festive Tapas Potluck event at the Botanical Gardens! This time, we’ll enjoy a lunchtime picnic indoors. We will meet to eat some tasty foods and mingle before some people go away for their holidays.
As this is a mid-day event and we want to pack light, please bring some tapas (finger food) that we can easily eat with our hands - it could be a specialty from your home country or a new recipe that you have mastered and want to share with us! Read more and sign up here.
TGIF with Spouse Community
Friday, December 7 from 17.00-20.00
Thorkilds, Mindebrogade 2, kld. 8000 Aarhus C

Join us as we get together for drinks and celebrate the end of the week at Thorkilds! We’ll be in the front part of the bar (look for our table signs on the right) where we’ll have some tables reserved and exclusive drink discounts for Spouse Community members - including a free beer on arrival and half-price cocktails! This fun and informal event is a great opportunity to bring your partners and friends, meet new people, and get to know Spouse Community! Our TGIF events are open to members and non-members – all are welcome and Spouse Community members will receive a special members-only discount on a range of beer.
Entry to this event is free and for adults only, attendees can purchase their own refreshments from the venue. Sign up here.
Weekly Danish Chat
Open to Spouse Community Members* only
Every week, our lovely Claudine hosts a Danish Chat session! It doesn’t matter what level you are currently at, all of our members are welcome to drop in. We sit around, enjoy some coffee and talk about anything we fancy in Danish. Claudine is there to help people with their accent, if they’re unsure of a word, or simply explain some of the language from one foreigner to another. To get access to the Danish Chat sessions, simply become a member!
