Below is an abstract for the seminar.

Anne-Marie will present a draft of a paper that she wrote together with Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq, a shaman from Greenland. The paper is titled “we know so much, but we have not learned to use knowledge wisely”. We submitted it to the NORDES conference 2021. Anne-Marie will share excerpts from the interview that she did with Angaangaq. In the paper, we share an invitation to join and learn from an open educational resource (OER) that shows the wisdom traditions of the world. In a conversation with a traditional healer and shaman from Greenland, Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq, Anne-Marie asked, if it is possible to learn from the wisdom traditions, and from the salient qualities in the aesthetic forms in wisdom practices, when designing for new communities of practice (CoP) in urban environments. We emphasize the importance of the learnings from nature that happened through thousands of years, and that have been incorporated in the wisdom traditions. Through several stories presented, some of which Anne-Marie will share in the research seminar, we look at how we might address the problematic relationship between people in the West and the indigenous peoples of the world. We claim that a process of mutual learning is needed in order to transition into sustainable ways of life – for all.
