Sarah De Nardi
In Australia, she is a lecturer in Heritage and Tourism and Associate Dean International for South Asia in the School of Social Sciences, Western Sydney University.
Sarah works with grassroots organisations and NGOs, offering workshops in creative place-based engagement and alternative mapping to boost belonging and active citizenship, based on the idea that we all share place, and that place is made of multiple stories. Place, with its many past and present facets, is a great starting point to explore each other's differences and synergies, celebrate our different points of view and work with this diversity towards more inclusive cities and communities.
In Sarah's learning lab participants will discover and engage with some ideas and practices that have proven useful and empowering with participants, all around the theme of place as meaningful as tool for cultural belonging. Some of these ideas and strategies may interest peers, and invite them to try these methods out for future use.
