ABOUT US AND THIS PLATFORM
AND THIS PLATFORM
We’re family. Truly. Dave and Ele as well as Tine and Ulli are partners. Having met over 20 years ago, we lived through our 20s and 30s together, being caring friends to each other.
Dr Ele Jansen
Ele is behind our kits and programs. She applies her artistic research to transform culture and economy. Focusing on creativity, intuition and playful co-design, she has won teaching awards and captured global audiences. Ele seeks and tells stories that reveal the deeper fabric of life. Her holistic cosmology is informed by people living with country. She cares about sensitivity and slow work and is curious about what makes people feel alive.
Tine makes everything we do more beautiful. She’s the magic hand behind our graphics as well as a critical and all-observing eye. A trained media designer, she’s always been her own boss. Her insight into alternative and creative ways of schooling informs our curricula. Raising three children, some of which enter adulthood now, has provided her with ample experience cultivating the creative core of her offspring as well as that of her wider circles.
Ulli is the big bear. His heart and stamina are so mighty! He has been working as a consultant with big corporations, both at agencies and self-employed. His library of recent business and self-guide books is beyond vast. Ulli seems to be out of time. There’s always time for helping others while juggling family and job life. His magic is presence. He’s Tine’s partner, too.
