If education is not the answer, you’re asking the wrong question.

Realisation is Perspectiva’s working translation and interpretation of the Germanic term Bildung. The direct translation is ‘formation’ but the original includes elements of education, enculturation and perhaps most profoundly realisation – in the sense of fulfilling one’s true nature of purpose.

Realisation can be thought of as a combination of societal vision, educational philosophy and policy agenda. The active ingredient we seek to work with is not so much about what we know, but how we know; a mixture of perception, emotion, thinking, meaning-making and embodied skill that we see as being generative of the formation of society.
