Stories of belonging
One of the ideas underpinning the stories of the guest presenters is the idea of difference. Interestingly, the presenters talk about being different in different ways. For Antoni, it was important that his parents emphasised he was “no different” from his brother, but for Duncan it was important that there was an understanding of “differing abilities.”
- What do you think is the significance of this idea of difference in terms of understanding human diversity?
- Do you think “belonging” is a useful concept?
- Belonging is closely linked to the desire for human connection. Based on your own experience, do you think this desire is universal, or does it vary among diverse individuals?
