Parul Bansal

As a strategist, journalist and poet, Parul uses storytelling and experience design to bring forward difficult conversations and unpack complex systems, from individual perception to social dynamics. Uncovering the emotions that sit deep behind ideologies and behaviour is perhaps Parul’s obsession.

Parul explores future narratives of identity and connection. She uses housing, art and technology as vehicles to seek renewed perceptions of difference. She believes unity is plurality. At the centrefold of her work, she questions how we can serve the human spirit better.

Parul has practical experience studying behavioural and emotional responses to language and processes. As a strategist, she works with organizations that are creating novel solutions and pushing the edges of our current models.

She holds a bachelor of science from McMaster University; post-graduate certification in negotiation from Harvard University, and a fellowship in journalism from the Munk School of Global Affairs and Policy, University of Toronto.

Parul is currently an artist-in-resident at Ferement’s year long residency, exploring the different outcomes of capitalism. Her artistic practices are poetry and creating multi-sensory experiences.
