Journalist & Communication-activist
Esther was one of the key-facilitators of the “Berlin Change Days” (BCD) https://www.berlinchangedays.com under the motto
“Courage & Corporate activism” – a tribal meeting for people with a passion for change. That’s how I got the opportunity
to talk to her about courage.
When Esther started to speak I was looking and listening to her intently and I felt like, wow – this lady just has it, from her appearance,
her style, her aura, her communication style, her sense of humour in fact everything about her. Esther was a great “communication-activist”
at this event. She did it her way and was not afraid of showing her emotions – just great.
“Discovering alternative futures and helping them along. That is what drives Esther Barfoot in her work as a communication activist.
Many systems, such as our democracy, financial system, ways of organising and communicating seem broken or faulty. Esther develops
and realises communication concepts for bottom-up and future-oriented movements… Activist communication stands between the
innovators and change agents and is co-created with them. It focuses on change that wants to happen. To do so, activist communication
addresses the intuition and experiments freely and eagerly with a great diversity of work forms and (artistic) concepts. It is not an
omniscient communication, but open to discover the future together with the participants.”
