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, such as a movement by police people in the Dutch National Police reclaiming their professionalism, a community initiated by Rotterdam council to prepare the city for climate change and the WE Programme, set up by Tchibo to improve human rights in the factories in their supply chain. 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.
