3 INTERACTIVE DAYS (14. - 16. October)
Within the framework of a diverse workshop programme, we offer the opportunity to further develop your own projects together with experts, get to know new storytelling approaches and collectively create impact strategies. The workshops include sessions on "Trauma-sensitive storytelling approaches", "Decolonising narratives", "Working in war and crisis regions" or "Developing impact strategies".
Day 1 (17. Oktober 2022)
There is no Planet B, and time is running out! This is why we will be focussing on the correlations between climate change, development cooperation and peace on the first day of our three-day conference. We will be offering you fruitful exchange with politicians and civil activists from all over the world. All this expertise in one place – and you can be in the thick of it.
Day 2 (18. Oktober 2022)
On day two of our conference we want to find out how to break through and diversify the dominant narratives and news coverage. Together with the Tunisian activist and diplomat Aya Chebbi, who will be co-curating this day, we aim to find answers to questions like: How do we get rid of (post)-colonial stereotypes? And how do we free ourselves from misogynist approaches?
Day 3 (19. Oktober 2022)
As a society, are we still actually able to talk to each other without being loud and offensive or getting hurt just because someone has a different view about something? How can we find more common ground? This is what we will be looking at on day three. Together with experts, we would like to discuss how constructive storytelling, open discourse and education can help to heal the rift running through our society.
