 Poetic Justice Dialogue Series

Poetic Justice Dialogue Series (previously entitled Dancing in the Liminal), is an independent free interview series I launched in March of 2012.



This dialogue series is a hub for engaging important conversations with artists, activists, authors, and influential thought leaders around the world who bring unique and fresh perspectives to an array of pressing global issues.



The conversations in this series range from political, to poetic, to philosophical in exploration, and aim to bring fresh thinking to a diverse array of topics by delving into the deeper layers of culture, art, economics, leadership, politics, activism, social media, gender, religion and spirituality in the 21st century.



"Vanessa has an open heart and a bold spirit with a deeply pulsating

interest towards contemporary and global issues. As an interview

hostess, she prepares her topics well and knows her subject deeply. She is able to create a space of ease that allows both her and her guest to go deeper into the topic at hand. I'm very grateful for the interview conversation she facilitated with me, looking at some of the most pressing issues facing women in the Middle East."

  ~Elza Maalouf, Founder of Global Feminine, Co-Founder of Center for Human Emergence in the Middle East
