Are you eager to create more inclusive and inspiring learning environments so that people from different cultures can share their stories, exchange best practices and develop cultural intelligence?

Are you longing to travel again and are curious how you can get inspired by art and storytelling and apply them in your trainings, coachings, facilitation or university classes?

Starting with visiting different art institutions online we are combining the experience with visual pieces of art with storytelling across cultures and exchange how people from around the world deal with the current challenges.

We start our art adventure in Amsterdam, at the Rijksmuseum and the Rembrandthuis, travel to the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and end our journey in Boston, followed by diving into discussions in story circles.


In the session SKIN COLOR we are going to have a look at artworks by old masters and contemporary artists and use the inspirations to dive into sharing stories. We are going to work with the framework by Lee Anne Bell “Storytelling for Social Justice” as the starting point and focus on the following questions:

  • What can we do to re-narrate worn-off stories and raise voice against racism and xenophobia?
  • What are the stories “depicting the world of obviousness”?
  • How can we create transformational stories?
  • What stories should we stop telling?
  • What stories should we start telling?
