The Cultural Other 

Ursula Stroux

April 16th 2024 
5 pm UTC / 7 pm MESZ

Two hours of self-reflection on cultural identity, its construction and reconstruction in respect to the cultural „Other“. How do they meet, interplay, collide or merge?

We have a look at basic principles of cultural encounter.

After the workshop, you’ll be able to identify some approaches of encountering and working with the „Other“ and also underlying narratives on cultural identity.

If there is time, we may also reflect on the „Otherworld“ as an imaginary concept of the „Other“.

This is a workshop, not a lecture – practical and hands on 😊. After a short introduction, you’ll work in groups and we’ll put together our results, before we go to the next topic.

 

Ursula Stroux, M.A. Cultural Studies, co-founder of this project, living and working in intercultural areas for over thirty years (international exchange, tourism, language courses) invites you to do some enlightening groundwork together.

Ample opportunities for discussion and dialogue will be provided.

His school for transformational storytelling, assisted by faculty from many cultures and traditions, has helped train spiritual storytellers from around the world.

This workshop will explore different ways in which a storyteller can engage the audience as part of the performance. Whether in the use of songs, movement, chants, Q&A, call and response, the participants learn how to weave interactivity seamlessly into a storytelling performance.

She is currently involved in a collaborative, Performative History project that uses storytelling and musical to discuss about the colonial period in Africa (1880 - 1960) through storytelling and music.
