Let’s reconnect with ourselves and by doing so we can build more fluid pathways to each other. In this workshop, we will introduce Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as proposed by Marshall Rosenberg and Meenadchi who teaches DNVC, NVC with a decolonial and transformative justice lens. These tools and communicative methodologies will allow us to focus on how we can guide encounters with oneself and with others.

Arlene has been applying NVC to her work on a personal and professional level. “By honing my active listening listening skills, and gaining clarity on my needs and feelings, I’ve been able to better take care of myself, my community and find ways to build in accountability and better boundaries.”

This workshop is for people familiar and not so familiar with NVC. By practicing, we can figure out how to be heard in the way intended, how to communicate clearly and how to listen empathetically.

The main language of the meetings will be in English. Other languages are highly recommended as multilingualism is celebrated. This is dependent on participants.

Please register by sending an email to by Thursday, February 17th.

Arlene Tucker’s socially engaged work utilises Translation Studies, Semiotics, and Feminist Practices. “As an artist, educator, and diversity agent, I realise my art through installation and dialogical practices. Always a co-creation with the public, my work allows us to share perspectives about identity and belonging through different mediums and approaches such as memories, hair, and letter writing. My work (i.e. Story Data, Free Translation, Knots) brings people together worldwide through a process-based artistic practice and makes all voices heard.” While Tucker has roots in Taiwan and the USA, she has been based in Finland since 2011.
