demoSlam is a dialog format for unconventional exchange about shared values and differences – personal, close to everyday life and creative. Participants work in pairs: one pair, one topic, two opinions. In a workshop on understanding, they are given the tools to conduct a dialogue even on difficult topics. After successfully conducting several German-Russian demoSlams, we want to establish the format in 5 Russian regions for intra-Russian discourse: Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk and Khabarovsk. For this purpose, we are doing an online course for Russian organizers and trainers and are planning a demoSlam Russia in the fall of 2021.
