Katharina v. Sohlern

In a world where humans are becoming increasingly polarized, I use research, design and play to bridge connections among people and spark empathy, curiosity, and wonder about one another.

I’m a strategic designer, field researcher, facilitator and creative whose work lies at the intersection of innovation, design and culture.

I see the world as a space of possibilities for creation and design.
In crafting strategic, creative, and transformative learning experiences, I aim to encourage people to trust their sense of possibilities and unleash their creative agency.

I combine different approaches from social anthropology, design (thinking) and theater. I worked with organizations from the private and public sector. Find more about my work on LinkedIn.

Performance and Artistic Production
I utilize participatory theater as a tool for audience self-reflection, aiming to explore the magic and absurdities of human existence.
