Holding Space: A Storytelling Approach to Trampling Diversity and Inclusion
Holding Space is the new book by Aminata Cairo, anthropologist, psychologist, dancer, educator, and the former lecturer (research professor) of Inclusive Education. In that position she was the first and only research professor of African descent in the Netherlands.
Her work approaches the pursuit of inclusivity and breaks boundaries in diversity. She uses Indigenous Knowledge, the Blues Aesthetics, Holy Hip Hop, Caribbean and Black Feminist Theories to spread her vision.
