Esther Barfoot

The cross roads of art, activism and transition | A taste of artistic activism

Esther Barfoot is a strategist, facilitator (on & offline) and communication activist for future oriented movements, e.g. in sustainability and empowerment. She is specialized in participatory process. In the past year she has helped to set up an empowerment movement within the Dutch National Police and a movement to prepare the city of Rotterdam for climate change and now she is helping to set up a movement in circular living in the same city.

Activist communication is a communication that focuses on change that wants to happen, instead of dictating what must happen. It is not an omniscient communication, but one that is open to discover the future together with the participants. A communication that addresses the intuition and experiments freely and eagerly with a great diversity of co-creative work forms and creative/artistic concepts.
