Our Impact

Our work impacts both individual and community:

  • We believe that our students can become creators of culture, not merely consumers, and inspire them to challenge the assumptions of modern, industrial culture through the arts.
  • Through our work and the trainings we hold for teachers and youth workers, we hope to spark a debate about the true meaning of education beyond the test-centered and utilitarian focus of the current political discourse. The publication of Creatively Maladjusted: The Wisdom Education Movement Manifesto also helps to spread the word about this work.
