Empathy is the Key (English)

Let op: Deze training is inmiddels van start, inschrijven is niet meer mogelijk.

Being an artist and performer Janhavi is aware of the power of empathy. Without empathy there is no real contact between the audience and the performer. But what is empathy and is there anything we can do contribute to a more empathic environment? Janhavi explores the role of empathy in integration of minorities through her PhD at the Vienna University. In this masterclass, she will perform and we will explore together what this teaches us about empathy and how we can use it in contact with the people we care for.

Masterclasses spring 2019

Since 2012, the Volunteer Academy has been organizing masterclasses to investigate how we can ensure an inclusive city with care for people in vulnerable positions. Together with a master we investigate what we encounter, we reflect on our own experience and attitude and we bring policy and care in practice.

Time and again it appears that contact is the key to moving forward together. That is why we are organizing a series of masterclasses this spring about what happens between people. With a number of (inter) national masters who also apply their knowledge in practice.


Masterclasses voorjaar 2019

Sinds 2012 organiseert de Vrijwilligersacademie masterclasses om te onderzoeken hoe we kunnen zorgen voor een inclusieve stad met zorg voor mensen in kwetsbare posities. Samen met een master onderzoeken we waar we tegenaan lopen, reflecteren we op onze eigen ervaring en houding en krijgen we handvatten voor beleid en zorg in de praktijk.

Het blijkt steeds weer dat contact de sleutel is om samen verder te komen. Daarom organiseren we dit voorjaar een serie masterclasses over wat er tussen mensen gebeurt. Met een aantal (inter)nationale masters die hun kennis ook in de praktijk toepassen.
