During these workshops, participants of different age-groups engaged in biographical work. In “history boxes”, they collected items and stories central to their own biographies and shared their experiences with each other. On walks, they led each other to places of importance for their lives. The consequences of conflict, violence, displacement and loss, as well as peace activism in individuals’ lives were discussed and links between collective and individual history were reflected.
The workshops were facilitated by Andrea Zemskov-Züge and Oliver Wolleh and co-facilitated in part by Cinta Depondt.
