Joke Bosschaerts:
When words come to life

About the workshop
Communication is about the verbal and non-verbal language.
When verbal possibillities are little and the urge or desire to communicate is big.... 
How can we understand words, what else can a word mean, what does the sound of the word mean, What does your sound looks like, … where can it bring us. 
Joke will tell about her experiences and invites you to explore.
