Invitation Letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

"When Divided Worlds Meet: Confluences of Identity, Culture, Continuity and Change"

On behalf of our two Societies, partners in this event, we invite you to participate in the 18th International Symposium in Group Analysis. We have planned this event with an awareness of COVID repercussions, of the gathering ecological crisis as well as of material differences in the circumstances of those who may wish to participate. This has led us to plan a gathering which will enable both remote and in-person engagement. We are aware that such dual engagement creates a division between participants, but we have nevertheless allowed ourselves to imagine a confluence of embodied and virtual groups, where streams of thought and currents of experience combine, as we seek to understand and articulate the groups that we are in the process of becoming.

Belgrade is a fitting setting in which to explore our theme. Sitting at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers - a place of meeting and of conflicts between cultures, seeking to establish common ground.

We are working to create a space for a meeting of minds - for learning, exploring and fruitful exchange; the international and local members of our committees are looking forward with growing enthusiasm to welcoming you.

David Glyn, Group Analytic Society International
Tija Despotović, Group Analytic Society Belgrade
