Conference – 2020

XIII Annual International Conference
“Self and Other: Space for Dialogue”
April 30 – May 4, 2020
St.Petersburg, Russia

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of Harmony Institute we would like to invite you to the XIII International Conference
“Self and Other: Space for Dialogue”.

In these times of complexity, political instability, and pressure it is hard to overestimate how much depends on the quality of relations within and between our societies, countries, families, groups, and within ourselves. The bonds and connections we establish help us to feel safer, more secure and stable and to withstand the threat of fragmentation. Therefore we find it very helpful, reassuring and supportive to keep learning and exploring about Diversity, Difference, and Otherness which we all face professionally and in our everyday life.

With your help we would like to look into the complexity of relations between different cultures, traditions, and ethnicities, between people of different religions and different opportunities. That is why it is so important for us to have participants from various countries and places within Russia.

During the Conference we will offer over 50 workshops, lectures, seminars, dialogue groups, discussions, and other events. You will be able to share your experience, make new connections, find new friends and learn about yourselves and others.

Here you can read more about our last conference.

Location: As it has been for the last 8 years, the Conference will take place at Kochubei Palace in Pushkin (former Tsar’s Village that is famous for its gardens and palaces) in a 30 minute drive to the South of St.Petersburg.

The registration starts on April 30, at 3 pm and the Opening Ceremony begins at 7 pm. Every day will have several events: morning lecture, workshops of your choice, dialogue groups and evening events (lectures, concerts, round tables, watching and discussing movies, open space etc). The Conference closes around 5 pm, on May 4.
