Art and sustainable change

„Art and sustainable change“

As we know the transition into a sustainable world is accompanied by a high level of instability and framed by a lot of open questions.

We must find intelligent, trendsetting solutions for many themes like energy supply, nutrition, global equity, water consumption, health problems etc.

Often, we wish to find the answers for all of these problems with our old mind strategies, because we are all more or less, slaves of our old cultural paradigm, but we forget our infinite inner resource: fantasy, our potential to dream to be creative.

This workshop will show us new, inspiring ways to get in contact with our hidden inside creativity in order to find surprising solutions for old problems.

Each of us has this creative power, but to become more aware of it, we must invest time, attention and passion.

This course is a collective exciting journey through fascinating landscapes of unknown possibilities.

After that we understand, the global change starts in our self, before we reach a balanced sustainable world, we have to create this vision inside us with creative power and a higher consciousness.
