Connexa Helvetica

The myth of storytelling

The fourth Connexa Helvetica event was held in October 2022 at the Eranos Foundation in Ascona. At this meeting, the discussion focused on the myth of "storytelling" and how important it is to tell your story. In the intimate round, two talents of the region met with the COO of the Locarno Film Festival, Raphaël Brunschwig.

Together with 2291.ch, Initiative Switzerland has launched the Connexa Helvetica project. We network experienced personalities from business, politics, culture and science with young people and talents. And this in all language regions of Switzerland. 

In an intimate dialogue and exchange, Gemma Tabet (student), Mattia Ferrari (chestnut farmer) and Raphaël Brunschwig (Locarno Film Festival) discussed how important it is to tell (one's) stories in order to create understanding. They discussed how relevant origin and formative experiences of the storytellers are in each case.

The next stop of our event series will take place in Bern. With Connexa Helvetica, we promote cohesion across all four cultures and language regions of Switzerland.
