A conversation about representation and inclusion in play
In connection with our dolls being sold at Bonnier's art gallery, an event was organized where we engaged in discussing the importance of diversity and inclusion in play.
Together with Marie Cham and Caroline Farberger, we had a deep and intimate conversation where personal experiences were shared and where concrete tips on how to contribute to a more inclusive society were shared.
Big thanks to the audience and everyone who contributed to the conversation, you guys are amazing!
"This kind of meeting is so important, we have to talk to each other, listen, ask curious questions, grow together"
"The risk is great for exclusion when the norm is not questioned. The important thing is to become aware of those who are not represented in the room and to work for inclusion by opening doors and inviting when the opportunity exists"
