We co-create with communities of all kinds opportunities to combine participative arts and mindfulness to promote wellbeing and dialogue.
Essential to wellbeing is the ability to participate in society in a meaningful way. That is why our methods enable people to pro-actively overcome obstacles to participation either within themselves or from external factors.
Essential to dialogue is the capacity to connect, to give and receive, to take notice and to keep learning. These happen also to be the activators of wellbeing. Our methods remind people how much fun this can be!
The method we use is called Context Oriented Arts (COArts)
Context Oriented Arts is an approach that applies the looking-glass of participatory arts to the complex challenges of today and creates a dynamic platform for personal, organisational and social transformation.
We have recently been supporting Creative Learning in schools through curating transformative processes with learners, creative practitioners and teacher as part of the Lead Creative Schools project, through CPD with teachers and through organising conferences to bring global experts in creativity in education together with teachers.
Our area of expertise is in applying participatory arts and mindfulness as a tool for releasing blocks to learning and insight.
