Individuals, as well as society in general, often find themselves in situations that need to be addressed Face to Face. We might be confronted with circumstances that turn our way of life upside down and we cannot simply avoid them.

Face to Faceis about mutual communication. Increasingly this takes place electronically, replacing personal contact or dialogue with a virtual experience.

Face to Faceis also about the highly current topic of social and cultural integration, about the ability to understand and help, even at the cost of our own discomfort.

The topic of Face to Face should provoke reflection about issues that for many reasons are pushed into the back of our minds when they do not affect us directly. It should also motivate us to establish a firm approach and creative response.
