We use the power of arts & crafts to open a space at the heart of the process where each person is offered an opportunity to meaningfully participate according to his/her capacity and ability. Read more >>

Open

We are proud "craftmen & craftwomen"(R. Sennett).

 

We share a similar idea of craftmanship and as such the same ethos.

 

Each of us nourishes it in our own way.

 

Our skills may have different names, patient leadership, social innovation, psychology, poetry, design, anthropology, law, philanthropy etc, but we are experts at "crafting" innovative ways to enable the meaningful participation of people in non-profit projects.

 

Each of us nourishes it in our own way. Go to our crafting diary to find more >>

Empathic & Responsive

It sparks empathy, an essential element to solve complex social problems for all involved. It can lead to the Co-empowerment of all involved unlocking the hidden resources necessary to enable systemic change.
