Social & Cultural Engagement
...sharing memories is soul food...
Join me on some of the social & cultural projects I get most of my inspiration from! I am hoping to encourage and motivate people to do their part in creating sustainable and long-lasting relationships, confronting history together successfully. I am always open for new connections so please don't hesitate to contact me.
"Be My Guest" Transatlantic Exchange
Currently under development.
If you are interested in partnering up with a student from North America to build a sustainable relationship between Europe and Canada/USA, want to become a partner/sponsor, or want to get involved please reach out!
We are looking for individuals who are interested in engaging in dialogues on transatlantic exchanges, promoting reconciliation, and understanding the process not only the outcome.
Monuments of the Future Transatlantic Exchange
The Monuments of the Future Program is to engage in a deep dialogue on the culture of remembrance and, in this context, address the handling of common and opposing memories regarding decolonization, racism, exclusion, and memory narratives beyond the mainstream. Participants include but are not limited to the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung/bpb (Federal Agency for Civic Education Germany), Harvard University, Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto. The program is co-sponsored by the Goethe Institute (Germany).
