co-operating Self-Survey

Click on this icon to answer the questions.


The questions are designed to help you reflect. You can change their order, leave out individual questions and add your own – and then you can print out your personal version of the survey. 


All of the questionnaires in Calypso can be filled out online and saved in PDF format or printed. Of course, you can also print out the blank survey forms and fill them in by hand too if you prefer!


This self-survey tool is only intended for you personally and is meant to help you to gain clarity about both your own artistic interests and your approach and motivation for the mediation work. Here you can recognise your wishes and expectations for the project and reflect on previously gained experiences too. The self-survey lays a solid foundation for the planning meeting.
