Our approach builds on over 10 years of experience in teaching, work as visiting artists at Universities and trainings in art, environmental science and yogic and somatic practices. The methods tap into the processes and wisdoms from diverse cultures, especially in depth enquires into the ‘village scale’, deep listening, earth-cycles and the use of storytelling and myth.(Read more here about our previous experience and contact us )

We are inspired by;
The notion that to Sufis; both the ritual and the craftsman evoke the life that resides within all things.
“The role of artworks is no longer to form imaginary and utopian realities, but to actually be ways of living and models of action within the existing real”.
Nicolas Bourriaud, Relational Aesthetics
