Have you ever asked yourself how to best communicate with other fellow humans and shape relationships with diverse people? How do we share and transform knowledge and create ongoing conversations with the communities scientists work with?


In this workshop, we will discuss these and other questions, facilitate creating spaces of communication and learn how to share our studies and research findings with the public beyond academia. We invite fellow students at different stages of studies who are interested in exploring the many possibilities and modes of communication and exchange to join. The workshop will be an interactive learning experience towards creating accessible, creative, fun, touching, and well-founded stories to relate and connect with the wider world from our immediate social environment in Switzerland and beyond.

The workshop is a collaborative project of the Student Forum together with studiyo filipino (more informations also on this website), a Switzerland-based platform that promotes enabling and innovative exchanges about the Philippines, and with the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of the University of Lucerne, with funding from the Universitäre Forschungsschwerpunkt "Family Change in the Context of Migration and Globalisation".


This workshop is also a unique opportunity for students interested in sharing their current, ongoing, and planned studies and projects, whether related to the Philippines or not. Some examples for topics we are interested in include but are not limited to migration, mobility and topics in transnational studies. Students with different compelling thematic studies and interests are also encouraged to participate. Anyone who likes to experience a co-creative workshop on how we can expand our skills and understanding and create a mutually satisfying experience as we communicate what we study is welcome to join. Furthermore, a team of anthropologists at the workshop will offer enriching insights on anthropological perspectives, especially the social and cultural dimensions, in communicating with other fellow humans in diverse contexts of exchange.

The training and discussions take place in connection and collaboration with the following event in Zurich:


The Philippines in the World –

Symposium for everybody who is interested in Philippine issue. A day and place to connect again. 

Part of the workshop will also be a practical exercise of communication at the Zurich Event.
