The workshop on pilot project “Diaversity” launched in 2013 is bringing together a group of initiators from Austria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, UK and USA to finalize its current organizational format, to test the working procedures for promoting dialogue that uncovers multifaceted ideas, and to set up the blueprint for launching regular “Diaversity” series in various locations. Dia-(logue-uni)-versity project is an informal new knowledge generating intellectual tool tailored to stimulate mutual life-long learning practices and individual creativity through genuine friendly dialogue series. We believe that groups of people united in the mentality of dialogue acquire a feel for the other side’s truth, a feeling of larger “Us”, and a deeper understanding of “Self” that gives them wings to get across multiple cultural, ethnic, communicative and generation gaps.
Main Vectors of Discussion: Practicing dialogue on key existential issues as a new model of life-long learning: scope of coverage, methods, self-didactics, critique and analysis; Master-class on Diaversity covering four themes: professionalism, talent, arts, the way to the “Self”; Shaping new forms of knowledge and understanding – a humanistic predicament of the 21st century; Diaversity outlets: starting sporadic mentorship chains within generation
