DOCH: How do we break the ”culture of silence”?

How do we break the ”culture of silence”?

A full-day conference at DOCH, School of Dance and Circus in Stockholm, with ”Open space” focusing on generating constructive proposals for the fields of dance and circus.

Saturday 27th of January 11 am – 6 pm
Brinellvägen 85, Stockholm

This is an invitation to all of you – our colleagues in the fields of dance and circus – students, teachers, artists, producers, technicians, programmers, curators, administrators etc.

The #Metoo-movement has revealed the critical need for action to break the culture of silence in all parts of society. The #tystdansaappeal from dancers practicing in Sweden and #theshowisover from international circus artists show the urgent need for action in our community as well.

DOCH wants to contribute to this change by inviting you all to a day of both sharing and action, support and making concrete plans.

We have chosen the democratic meeting technology of OPEN SPACE. It is a technique that allows everyone to participate in their own manner and where we all together plan the agenda of the day. At the end of the day of gathering, we will have produced a document full of action-plans.

The main question of the meeting will be: HOW DO WE BREAK THE CULTURE OF SILENCE?

Everyone has the possibility to participate with his/her/ze own ”heart” question- what you find the most important in relation to the subject.

This event is initiated by the heads of departments at DOCH, a part of Uniarts. Johanna Skobe (actor and gestalt therapist) will be facilitating the meeting. She has long experience in leading Open Space.

Venue: The address is DOCH, Brinellvägen 58. Subway station Tekniska Högskolan (note that it is 10 minutes walk from the station to DOCH)

Date: Saturday 27th of January at 11 am – 6 pmThe language at the meeting will be English and Swedish.

We strongly recommend that you stay the whole meeting; there is much more energy in a group that commits to a meeting and stays till it is finished.

You don’t have to prepare anything before.
