Welcome to Consenses

An artistic game of telephone

Consenses helps build collaborative, critical thinkers with curious minds.

In a world that is fragmented and divided, it is often difficult for people to listen to one another, let alone consider, relate to and appreciate someone else's perspective. Consenses is a vehicle for connection, understanding, and peace using art as a lens and a language through which to see ourselves, each other and our world more clearly, compassionately, and expansively. Participants learn tolerance and empathy through “listening” to others, not through their words, but through various art forms.
