What we're about

As the world gets smaller and flatter, people are ever more connected. But are we more informed and knowledgeable? Are we more engaged, understanding, and empathetic? This workshop is for us to learn together.

Join us for Open Minds, News Talk, book talks, debates, potlucks, picnics, socials and games - all for getting us to talk and share. Kat is taking the workshop with her as she travels the world, so grab one of the events while they're in your town. Kat's events have been to over 28 countries.

*New York Cat English Workshop events are conducted in English.

(Online)🍿《Open Screens》The Best Films Series / Women's History Month: Portrait of a Lady on Fire

⚖️ March is Women's History Month designated by UN, and we'll be doing a few events on gender, equality, women's rights and issues, feminism, and more. This is the second film of the 3 films for our celebration. Join us!

⚠️ We're having this event online at 9 pm Taipei Time for international participation.

Our《Open Screens》discussion explores the story and ideas in a movie or TV series, as well as issues it may touch upon. We'll try various discussion formats and even a game or two to make our talk even more interesting. It's also a great opportunity for meeting people and using our English.

📌 Please watch the film on your own before the event. It may be difficult to participate in the discussion without having seen it.
