The programme offers pre- and post-conference workshops, plenary lectures, workshop sessions, a rewarded documentary film, and voices from the margins.

In this project we let a member of the organising committee co-operate with others who have a strong connection with people whose voices are silenced, consciously, or most often, as part of ongoing Foulcauldian power/knowledge dynamics. These dynamics generate a perceived centre, where a-personal discourses become self-evident, and aren’t noticed anymore. Because of this people are actively marginalised.
Instead of theoretically deconstructing those power-dynamics, we hope to defy them, by offering silenced voices a public and a public space.
We give a voice in order to ‘marginalise’ the perceived centre.
