The Bus Within Us

A game for holding spaces for complexity within us

What is it?

A tool used to enhance the inclusion of different perspectives in your dialogues about the future. Through the bus metaphor, participants imagine a conversation between different passengers and reflect on their words, feelings and thoughts

Use it to

  • Enhance awareness of different perspectives in a conversation
  • Learn and observe people in a conversation without judgement
  • Move beyond current experiences and assumption


An exercise from the collective work ‘Gesturing towards Decolonial Futures’
