New Perspectives through Creative Inquiry

The goal of this publication is to share the journeys of our authors and creators as they explore their experience. We present writings, reflections and artistic pieces to inspire new ideas, new explorations, and new questions, sparking opportunities to tap into the richness and multidimensionality of experience.  

Every work presented here is a work in progress, because creative inquiry never settles on a final answer. We embrace the unfolding of insight without being bound by its conclusions. This is a playground, where creators and viewers can enjoy knowledge, celebrate its appearance, and move with the flow: what is my experience as I engage this piece? Is it changing? How do I know?
