Questions from the audience

All Welcome!

Worldwork is an awareness attitude for working with communities, small and large groups. It was developed by Arnold Mindell, founder of Process Work in the late 1970s and 1980s. Worldwork also refers to an experiential training in conflict work, facilitation and community building. It first took place as a seminar in 1991 and is held by the International Association of Process Oriented Psychology (IAPOP) every 2-3 years.

Feel the atmosphere of Worldwork

For Worldwork, people gather from around the world for a 6-10 day event, to process important issues and hold the tensions within our world. Conflicts are brought forth and facilitated by a trained and dedicated staff. The aim is to create deeper relationships and understanding by reaching some temporary resolution. The gathering is culturally and linguistically diverse. Everybody’s story matters. The issues that arise are largely determined by the life concerns of people who attend, as well as the location on this planet we share. Human history on this earth shapes the interactions that are focused on. As we understand each other more, something deep in us is healed.

This graphic novel is an analysis and a creative graphic documentation of the social issues processed during Worldwork Greece 2017, told through the relationship between the authors. Venetia and Lynn host us as we dive into three large group processes that took place. Each chapter represents a topic as processed by the group of participants and facilitators.  This graphic novel is a small taste of a rich experience.

Topics include:
  • The financial crisis in Greece and the EU
  • Refugees and Borders
  • Capitalism and Slavery
