Online workshop: Introduction to re-authoring diversity and inclusion with Chené Swart & Lungi Molamu 

Narrative Walks

The Institute for Narrative Therapy and Community Work in Greece, in the context of its social response in a difficult period for each of us personally and also for our society, decided to organize a series of interactive online workshops, lectures, and discussions under the title “Narrative Walks”.

Narrative Walks will try to focus mainly on hot topics that can be addressed through the perspective of a narrative approach in the field of psychotherapy, community practice, organizations, and social responsibility.

We start with the idea that Narrative Walks are short in duration (usually half a day), host excellent professionals in their field from all over the world, are offered regularly with an affordable financial contribution, and will inspire, challenge, and create a field of constructive discussion and learning.

In this 4-hour introductory virtual workshop with Chené Swart and Lungi Molamu, we will focus on the re-authoring ideas and practices, that can help us have conversations about the positive and negative sides of our cultural identities, as they play into our relatedness with the “other” and sometimes with the “othering”.  These ideas and practices create a re-dignifying space, where our conversations invite stories, that build bridges to the other.

Re-authoring is an invitation into the adventure of being authors and co-authors of our world.

An adventure that speaks of:

  • our acts of refusal and protest about the “way things are”
  • the folding of the richness of our lives into our identities and relationships
  • the invitation to re-member our communities and
  • the ignition of hope through alternative narratives, narratives that open up possibilities for dreaming a different future.

Through a lens and set of practices,

  1. what is taken-for-granted can be unveiled and re-examined and
  2. precious moments can be enriched into narratives that can re-author the future.

Also, practices of welcoming, dignifying and connecting will be discussed. The content of the workshop will be connected with important social issues, like the MeToo movement and the climate crisis.

Come and join our community as we invite you to see, be seen, connect, dignify, listen, question, unpack, enrich, narrate and burst into aliveness!

And there is more: This workshop is an introduction to a series of six workshops that can be attended as a whole or separately with Chené Swart. These workshops address the most important themes of re-authoring ideas and practices over a 6-month period. Learn more here:




Chené Swart is a Narrative Therapist from South Africa who has been translating narrative ideas and practices with organizations, communities and individuals from various cultures and contexts. Her work builds on the gifts of narratives, human connectedness, diversity, moving through and transformation that inspired the book, Re-authoring the World!

For the last 20 years, she has been exploring how we can take back the pen and re-author with dignity and beauty our human presence in this world. The work she brings is an offering to change and challenge the way we look, so that we can see and do differently in our relatedness with ourselves, one another and the world. She believes that “the way things are” can be challenged, re-authored and transformed. She is committed to participate in and contribute to conversations and actions that re-author our world towards the common good, one narrative at a time!

Lungi Molamu is an Organisational Development Consultant from South Africa having worked for over twenty years in the area of Diversity and Inclusion. She completed a two- year Advanced Diploma in Narrative Ideas in 2016 and has been incorporating these ideas in her work.

The gifts she brings to her work on Diversity and Inclusion as a Narrative Therapist drives her to examine and to question the plots we have taken for granted.  Her work gives us the chance to re-examine the various roles that we have created for ourselves and others over time, and to realize that we have choices in re-authoring these narratives. This re-authoring constitutes a new relationship with life and the world. It enables the person to create and recreate the self as a character in one’s own on-going story. This has a transformational character which is critical in Diversity and Inclusion.

The co-facilitators of the journey

Chené Swart and Lungi Molamu started working together in diversity and inclusion projects in 2008. They have combined their love for narrative work in workshops and client work since 2017, while giving Re-authoring Diversity and Inclusion workshops all over the world. Their work is built upon years of working together in this field, a deep friendship and a love for narrative re-authoring ideas and all this continually opens up new ideas and practices.
