The Experience Archive

The Experience Archive is an ongoing reflection project Building Conversation has started working on in 2021. At Building Conversation we recognize the significance of the participants of our work and wanted to create a way to continue the conversations that our work ignites or brings up again. Even more so, our mission is to activate people to approach their own conversation culture as an artist and reflecting plays a big part in that.
The main focus of The Experience Archive is to gather and write down a profound collection of reflections and experiences from people that attended performances of Building Conversation – and to integrate this back and forth reflecting in our work process. With the reflections, we can form new connections, encounter new and other possibilities and, most of all, keep the dialogue going. The Experience Archive aims to extend the conversations and to open up new dialogues about our work.

If you have any questions or if you are interested in participating in this project, you can contact us on reflectie@buildingconversation.nl

5th of May 2021, Digital Silence | Edited Version | Lata Anastasia
Everything becomes a part of the conversation, not only me as a person, but my laptop, the trees outside of my window for example, everything is taking part in the performance, in the actual conversation.” read more
