In this vis-a-vis session, we are going to focus on metaphors in the world of fine arts and their power to tell compelling stories and re-narrate the existing ones. I have chosen the Arabic word “al qantara”, which signifies the bridge to additionally focus on building bridges of understanding across cultures.

Starting with visiting different art institutions online we are combining the experience with visual pieces of art with storytelling across cultures and coaching tools.


We start our vis-a-vis art adventure in Tokyo, travel to Paris, and end our virtual session in Doha in Qatar. Al qantara stands for a bridge and the focus of our travelling is building bridges of understanding across cultures – of course with sharing stories and getting inspirations from the powerful metaphors.
