Deep Democracy - The Wisdom of the Minority

investigating to come to deeper understanding

Powered by Stefan Hoevenaar & Inge Wallage

“What are the aspects of deep democracy to connect people with different backgrounds to each other?”


“I’m fascinated by forms of conversation, ways to get together and rituals to connect people. Especially in a this time where there is no longer a church to bond people and where social cohesion and connection are more important for the happiness of people as ever. Although we have wealth and health, there is social poverty. I want to discover forms of conversation to see if they can connect people with different backgrounds. “~ Stefan Hoevenaar


This night we’re experiencing a Deep Democracy dialogue. This is a dialogue form for groups that seeks the wisdom of the minority. We search for alternative points of view to reach a consensus unanimously.

The dialogue is guided by expert Inge Wallage.


“The improvement of understanding is for two ends: first, our own increase of knowledge; secondly, to enable us to deliver that knowledge to others.”

– John Locke
