We from Studio Connecting Cultures celebrate diversity. We find it important that newcomers can merge into society and feel at home. Accordingly, our mission is to create a sustainable connection between natives and newcomers. We help them to expand their horizon, exchange perspectives and learn from each other. In this way they can build up multi-cultural friendships.
Studio Connecting Cultures provides a set of workshops that guides people from different cultures to build up a strong friendship. In these workshops, we make use of the Connecting Cultures Toolkit. This toolkit contains small games and exercises in four steps that support the participants to build up a mutual understanding and celebrate diversity.
The standard workshops are meant for a maximum of 12 participants and you can choose between 1, 2 or 4 sessions of two hours. We can customize the program and duration of the workshops to your preferences.
STEP 1 GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER
These questions and assignments help to break the ice. They offer topics for conversation and allow the participants to get to know each other in a different way.
STEP 2 GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER'S CULTURE
Exploring other cultures is fun and exciting. Through enticing questions the participants will share aspects of their culture and how they relate to them.
STEP 3 CHANGE YOUR GLASSES
Everyone looks at the world in their own way. With these games the participants will discover cultural differences and similarities and explore where these come from.
STEP 4 CELEBRATE DIVERSITY
This exercise stimulates the participants to reflect on the diversity in their team. Which differences are inspiring and which similarities surprising?
We offer the following standard packages. Furthermore, we can adjust the program and duration of the workshops to your goals and preferences and make a special offer for your organization.
PACKAGE I GETTING ACQUAINTED | 1 session
In this workshop the participants will get to know each other in a different way and be introduced to each others cultures.
PACKAGE II EXCHANGING PERSPECTIVES | 2 sessions
In these two workshops the participants will get to know each other and explore each other’s cultures. Moreover, they will discover and understand cultural differences and similarities by engaging in small games and exercises.
PACKAGE III BUILDING FRIENDSHIPS | 4 sessions
In these four workshops we will support the participants in discovering and understanding cultural differences and similarities. By combining the toolkit exercises with reflective sessions we will help them to build up a mutual understanding and celebrate diversity.
