“Encouraging diversity and exploration through intercultural competence.”

Katharina Held Founder at MAPAMUNDI

Katharina Held

As an ethnologist and intercultural coach, I am driven by a passion for exploring different cultures, their traditions, rituals, and languages. My globetrotting spirit has led me to live and work in Argentina, Mexico, Ghana, and Spain, each destination offering a unique cultural tapestry to unravel.

Currently, I am at the helm of MAPAMUNDI, an organization that bridges cultural divides through international collaboration.

“Be open to the world, to people and to yourself. 
That is when incredible things happen.”
