Mano Krach

1980 GDR

I am a he-she, a nonbinary, a misfit.
White bodied, queer with working class background.
I have a lower secondary school cert and an art diploma.
I live with invisibel disabilities.
I am brokenhearted. Wounded. Seeking for liberation.

I have undergone intensive further training in recent years:
  • Nonviolent communication integrating a systemic lens of power and privilege
  • Mindfulness and somatic-based methods
  • Trauma-informed approaches in social justice work
  • Conflict, communication and decision-making processes in groups  

I am deeply influenced by the work of:

I want to make something visible:
I would like to thank all the people and initiatives who, through their pricing policy and support, make it possible for people with little money to take part in their trainings and courses. A very large proportion of the trainings listed here would otherwise not have been accesible for me.
