A chance to explore today’s big questions
An Open Quest offers a unique chance to explore the world -- and ourselves -- from fresh perspectives.
We're excited to announce two open programmes for 2019:
Exploring the balance: Life and history in Israel and Palestine (18-23 May)
Associated with age-old conflict, Israel and Palestine are also home to leaders healing divides with tenacity and compassion, amidst a cultural landscape of incredible richness and diversity. A chance to challenge our preconceptions about others – and ourselves – and consider the subtle complexities of life and history; identity and connection.
New leadership for changing times: Globalisation and tradition in Mexico (02-05 Oct)
Mexico is riding a populist wave at a time when tensions with its US neighbour have put decades of fragile diplomacy under the spotlight. A country of manufacturing success and informal, cash-driven markets, it embodies complex narratives: future trends vs family traditions, globalisation vs national identity.
