the crazy

We believe it’s time for adults to admit that the world they are handing down to the next generation is full of uncertainty and our current ways of living no longer serve us.

Once we stop pretending everything is under control we can start getting creative about how to shape the future our young people deserve.

let's pay attention to

the beautiful

There is so much beauty in this world – often hiding in plain sight – but with all the noise,  distraction and bad news cycles it can sometimes be hard to see. 

We are on a mission to draw attention to people who are making the world a better place and protecting the future for the next generation.

By drawing attention to the beautiful we become each other’s signposts for the world we want to protect and rebuild.

In a world that seems crazy and divided we need, more than ever, to find ways to stay connected and develop our collective wisdom and compassion.

That’s how we transform the crazy into the beautiful.

“The storyteller knows that the timelessness found in listening is always the ground of all existence.”

Laura Simms – Storyteller, Author, Humanitarian

Our Crazy Beautiful Stories programme explores how the rich folklore and mythology of oral cultures may help us answer the following questions:

  • How do our current issues relate to the larger universal questions that humans have always faced?
  • What can we learn from non/pre-industrial societies about what it means to live a good life?
  • What ancient stories do we need now to guide us into the future?
