About

I am an artist, educator, researcher, trained non-violent conflict consultant, art of hosting and open space facilitator. I achieved a PhD about her public artwork in 2012. From 2007-2012, I developed and led the Art in Public master programme at the University of Ulster in Belfast together with Dan Shipsides. From 2006 until 2012 I was  a member of the Research Center Interface at UU. I work predominantly in public and on long-term questions, which tackle creative arguments around the ideas of democracy and future viable forms of living and working. Works include among other things issues around money, migration, surviving, work, societal visions and participation models.

Consequently my work as an artist and educator as well as facilitator deals with creative forms of communication and negotiation as well as a horizontal approach of communication between all present people in settings. I am regularly using Future Workshops and elements of World Cafe in her teaching as well as mediation and coaching methods in supporting students. I have used Open Space and other Art of Hosting methods in public art commisisons and in other settings. I am looking at the role of the artist and the artwork as bridgemaker and shuttle between various constituencies involved in site or situation.

I am trained in Art of Hosting (2014), as Systemic Constellation Facilitator (2013-14) and Open Space facilitator (2008) as well as a professionally trained conflict consultant (2004).

Open Space Technology (OST) is a process for facilitating complex meetings. It is people-centred and result-orientated. OST allows people to broach difficult subjects together and address conflict. Participants in Open Space meetings are empowered by being made responsible for their own interests, desires and actions. OS meetings have involved anything between 5 and over 2000 participants. Based on the philosophy of self-organising systems, OST invests in the concept that people do best when they represent themselves. Developed by American facilitator Harrison Owen in the nineties, OST has four tenets. They are; ‘Whoever comes is the right people’; ‘When it’s over it’s over’; ‘Whenever it starts is the right time’; and ‘Whatever happens is the only thing that could have’. There is one law; ‘The law of two feet’; anyone can walk away from any discussion at any time. The tenets are designed to foster a relaxed, inclusive atmosphere, and to encourage engaged group-work and cross-fertilisation of ideas. The law affords the individual responsibility for his or her presence, open-mindedness and actions.
