Merri Hanson of Peninsula Mediation & ADR presented “Moving Beyond the Single Story,” a half-day workshop for adult and school group docents at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC on January 11, 2017. This workshop explored how unconscious bias shapes the stories that we tell. Our biases can exclude alternative views or expand and include the multiple stories and experiences of Gallery visitors. Provocative works of art were discussed in terms of the elements of good storytelling and inclusive language by the docents.
