In any situation, there is always a next best step. This next best step is not always clear or obvious, but it is always within reach. There are invisible doorways around us at every moment, and each doorway is a threshold to a possible future. Possibilities must be found, invented, created, coaxed, manifested, discovered.
This is the job of the Possibilitarian.
The art of the possible is the art of finding the next best step; the art of paying attention, of noticing. It is the art of finding the thresholds and following the threads that lead to new perspectives, paradigms and opportunities. What matters most is not what we seek, but what we find.
We believe that the time is ripe for a new learning paradigm, based on live, real-time online courses, taught by artisans, practitioners, scientists and explorers, co-creating in virtually connected workshops and studios.
When Walter Gropius proclaimed the Bauhaus, he wrote:
“There is no such thing as ‘art by profession.” There is no essential difference between the artist and the artisan. The artist is an exalted artisan… the foundations of proficiency are indispensable to every artist. This is the original source of creative design.”Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus Manifesto.
