Who am I? Who are You? What makes us We?
diversIDENTITY will help you explore these questions in a contemporary and intercultural context, matching your stories with those playing the game with you. Crises of identity and challenges to whom we believe ourselves to be abound in today’s world. National, ethnic, racial, generational, political and religious, professional and personal identities are both conflicting and mutating in an environment of global exchange, neuroscientific insights and a revolution in digital communication and artificial intelligence. Identity has been and continues to be both a source of privilege and perpetrator of genocide. Connecting with each other on these questions is key to our well-being now and as an investment in our future humanity.
