MoveMakers: A Movement in the Making
“A movement you do not start, it starts you when its ready to”, says Thieu Besselink, one of the participants of the MoveMakers joyride. Wherever we go and whomever we meet, people ask “Who are you? What is it that you do as MoveMakers?”. It might be difficult to understand at first, that MoveMakers is still in “making” and “becoming”. It started as a learning journey for practitioners in the field of education to learn, share and help each other, but as we slowly learn, there is more to that. Thieu made some observations during the LAB2, and shares those with you.
MOVE AND BE MOVED TO MAKE A MOVE
We are a nomadic school of learners, soul searchers and fire starters.
Burning for the life in learning, with a sense of urgency in the face of a world. In search of new coordinates to navigate the chaos and destruction that we see around us and at times experience within ourselves.
A MOVING HOME
We connect and come together, with everything we are, with everything we fear, and everything we dream of. Because it is in the nature of our work to hold and facilitate so many others that a place for being held is really a necessity.
A MAKER INCUBATOR
We – pioneers help each other in bringing our gifts into the world and strengthening the projects we take back home. We realise that the world moves if we do our work well.
MOVE MAKERS: A MOVEMENT IN THE MAKING
What emerges from our journey is a growing ownership amongst the makers and of the direction we are taking. We are unlearning what we know and and learning to organise in new ways. We are spreading the fire and creating tools and games for others to move and make.
What else can we do, to enable everyone else to make their move?
