SIUNISSAQ


IN SIUNISSAQ...

In Siunissaq art, dialogue and movement generate free thinking and paths of development by building 

confidence, trust, and empathy.

 

Siunissaq creates the space to cultivate the joy and strength we need to meet the challenges and pain that are 

an inevitable part of our lives and the lives we share.

 

Siunissaq is an open, creative and dialogue-based process of collective learning, a social movement where people in communities – young people, their families, their teachers, and social workers and artists – come together to build knowledge, create change, generate agency, and celebrate our love of life in local communities.

In Siunissaq we do not work with people, we work together with them. We are not interested in moulding people. Our focus is the meaningful aspects of the lives we share: hope, joy, capability, having values, and looking after each other in a strong network that provides protection from violence and abuse. We do not want to change anyone, but together we hope to generate more hope, joy, resourcefulness, values, care, and protection.”                                                                                                                      –    Peter Berliner & Tina Enghoff: Collaboration, Dialogue and Trust, 2019
