COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Inclusive Identities Lab

A practice and policy lab where researchers and practitioners working with inclusion and integration are brought together in a 1-day to a week long facilitated process allowing for the emergence of powerful and informed policy initiatives as well as research agendas.

The Art of Dialogue

Have meaningful and transformative dialogues between various ideological positions.  Engage in a deep exchange of opinions without entering into a defensive debate on these positions. Deepen your sense of relatedness with the other across significant differences.

Narrative Retelling

Experience another's reality through an experiential immersion of the self into the identity and experience of the 'other'. An evidence based, powerful empathy building process that transforms the inner experience of the 'other' and thereby positively impacts one's sense of relatedness with the other.

Research Communication

Presentations on cutting edge reasearch around identity and inclusion that impacts the experience of 'integration' in communities. These could be talks, brief workshops or creative installations in exhibitions and fairs.
