Workshops and lectures

 

I have worked for human rights in the civil society for fifteen years. You can visit my Linked-in profile for details. When the time is right I give workshops, lectures and trainings in leadership and communication for change. I also offer creative workshops in basic pop-up techniques and book binding for kids and adults. When I can combine my experience in human rights, visual communication and craft I thrive! This has been the case when I held workshops for Brandbergen library, Östberga culture house and Linnaeus University.  During 2022 I am developing a workshop that combines theory and practice; article 10 from the UN universal declaration of human rights: Freedom of expression with book binding. Let me know if you have an opportunity in mind and I would be happy to explore possibilities together!
