“The challenge is not to reform education but to transform it. As we face a very uncertain future, the answer is not to do better what we’ve done before. We have to do something else.” – Sir Ken Robinson.
We are all so very different in our needs and interests. Creative education celebrates these differences and teaches us to value ourselves by discovering what makes us unique – we create in our own rhythm, using only our personal resources with no interference, no comparison or assessment based on given standards.
Arno Stern called this activity in his Closlieu ‘creative education’, thus indicating the importance of one’s autonomy. Personal development is linked to the social experience, therefore the activity in the ‘Closlieu’ space allows individuals to define themselves among others and not against others.
