A symposium on the state of affairs of diversity in medicine education. The theme was ‘Colorful Connection’ and we made a substantial contribution to this day. On different levels. Artist Lina Issa coached the speakers to bring their story to the fore and made sure that the participants were presented with a surprising program in which they immediately started working on the theme.
They were asked to start a conversation with a stranger by asking the following questions: “Have you gotten a hug today? What is a comforting question for you? and What does skin color mean to you?” This not only created ‘real conversations’ between the participants, but also a sense of connection. And that was – just like the rest of the day – captured in a special way by the Beeldvormers. You can see exactly what this looks like.
