I'm currently working as a teacher and researcher at the Amsterdam University of Applied Science, social and cultural department. Within Amsterdam we have 3 cultural projects in the deprived parts of the city that encourage feeling at home for all inhabitants. We examine in what way cultural interventions can create or stimulate new communities, empowerment and well being. One of the projects I'm particularly proud of is "Kolenkit" of cascoland. www.cascoland.com
I"m really enspired by the work of the constellation and would be very happy to join a SALT visit when possible, or to contribute my time and network for the Dutch new group.
A live full of love and creative energy to share without boundaries
Fears, those of my own and those of others who are in power....
I'm proud of:

Hoi Willemien. Nog een heel aandachtig 2011 gewenst! Ik ben net terug van een week bij Plum Village Duitsland (www.eiab.eu). Was mooi om zo het nieuwe jaar in te gaan. Ik vond vanmiddag jouw kaart die je ons had gegeven voordat we naar Thailand gingen. Het was een lotusbloem met een hele mooie text. Was mooi om weer te lezen.
