Susanne Bosch

Connecting to imagine and create a better future for our world through meaningful dialogue: Who, what and how? A two day Toolbox.
Get your ticket here:

How does change and transformation come about? This workshop explores the HOW of how moments and spaces of change need to be set up. We will use the 2 days to experience formats of meaningful social encounters on eye level. We will look at tools and methods that allow for decision-making, generating input or finding common ground on a broad basis. But also looking at the I within the WE, the WE within the I. Based on techniques of art as well as “Art of Hosting”, dialogue circles and social presencing theatre/ Arawana Hayashi, we will make practical experiences with some of these approaches and the techniques.

With various artistic experiments and formats we will explore the nature of our interdependence and what every individual brings to the table. These 2 toolbox days offers an experimental format of approaching a human, societal or globally urgent topic. The days offer open space between workshop, practice, constructive dispute, action and re-action.
