Inter-Cultural Thinking

Inter-Cultural Thinking provides organizations with an opportunity to dissect and collectively (re)define the meaning of culture, the dimensions of culture and the benefits of culture to their organizational growth and sustainability. Through a collective understanding of what culture means, your organization can then focus on producing frameworks for addressing inequities in how your organization approaches cultural identities, cultural production and/or spatial culture.

Cultural production could encompass aspects of public art, theatre arts, gallery or heritage exhibits, etc., while spatial culture can be understood as a spatial expression of a society in relation to its history, trauma, joy and evolution. Inter-Cultural Thinking asks, "How do your audience members or operational landscapes reflect the communities you engage, serve or represent? How do they not?  

Whether it is through a workshop, brainstorming or action research, Inclusive Voices will offer a dialogue that has you and your team rethinking community relationships, cultural practice and EDIA (equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility) standards across your organization.

"Dr. Brennan's standing room only lecture on Local Indigenous Settlements provided new awareness augmented by personal insights into our regions Indigenous history. Her stories will continue to influence how the museum approaches pre-colonial maritime history in our new exhibits."

Doug Cowie, Museum Manager, Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston
"Culture is a common good that broadens everyone’s capacity to shape his or her own future. All individuals are vehicles of culture, as well as participants in its development. Culture itself is a process that allows us to understand, interpret, and transform reality."
