New Orleans Museum of Art
A Queen Within Adorned Archetypes is an exhibition developed by Barrett Barrera Projects and MUSEEA, and toured internationally by Flying Fish. The New Orleans presentation is supported by Ashley Longshore and Millie Davis Kohn.
Experimental gowns, headpieces, and jewelry by avant-garde fashion designers such as Alexander McQueen, Gucci, and Iris van Herpen investigate symbols of womanhood and challenge conventional notions of beauty. More than 100 articles of daring fashion are presented in a dramatic gallery design that explores seven archetypal personality types, including Sage, Magician, Enchantress, Explorer, Mother Earth, Heroine, and Thespian.
Exhibiting from February-May 2018 in New Orleans Museum of Art.
We have been involved in all from sitting on the Advisory Board to writing exhibition texts. The focus has been on overseeing the exhibition to create more inclusion and representation. The process involved reviewing visuals (photography and designs), writing and reviewing the exhibition texts (cultural insights) and introducing new creatives to attract a wider audience.

Stockholm School of Economics
Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) is one of Europe's leading business schools. One of SSE strength is its reputation and extensive network with business-community in Sweden. In the Spring of 2016 SSE opened up application for Rapid Acceleration Management Program (RAMP), an executive management program targeting highly educated people who have been granted asylum in Sweden.
Contelier developed a communication strategy. We focused on words, visuals and a message that would resonate with the highly educated target group and identified channels to best reach them. The program had set high entry requirements and goal of equal gender balance. One of our most important task was therefore to attract female applicants. This was done in collaboration with Women Executive Search.
The pilot program had 14 participants and 43% of these were females. The program also managed to attract a diverse set of participant. The participants have all university degrees including Law, Engineering and Literary Science. The participant on the pilot program are from Syria, Iran, Ethiopia and Eritrea. The campaign Contelier developed spread on social media both on SSE's own channel and through other channels we identified as relevant
A meeting point for Tech, Science and Innovation, Business, Public Sector, Culture and Creativity.
Contelier is involved in developing the engagement platform and achieving diversity throughout the innovation conference.
