School of Cultural Creativity Zentience


So you know we’re building a creative school, right? We’re the first in Australia (I’d go so far as to say the world if I were fully confident) to build a school that consciously educates children through the creative process rather than the academic process.

To do this extremely well… to offer children the experiences creative experience… we need to be learning from creatives.

Zentience offers SoCE an opportunity to learn and grow from the wisdom and experience of creatives, and Zentience offers creatives and opportunity to learn from each other and grow from greater practice.


Why we are here

“ZENTIENCE” … is a recorded and published learning and networking program… mixed with zen time.

You know we’re building a creative school, yeah? Well, the best way for us to ensure we are learning about creative experience, is to ask creatives about their experience. This way, we can be sure we are offering to our children the most authentic kind of creative learning possible.

The focus of each ZENTIENCE is the filmed panel of creatives. The interview-style discussion will be an hour long, and will be published on YouTube and here on our website and Facebook page. Each session begins with this panel.

The rest of the session includes:

  • exploration of your projects and enterprises
  • arrangement of the promotion of your projects and enterprises through SoCE’s online media
  • a meal, and
  • music.

We meet, connect, explore, and move forward with our interests, projects, or enterprises bigger and stronger than before.

It is designed for creatives of our beautiful Yarra Valley and Ranges who are into social and ecological creativity, for example:

  • the arts 
  • sustainability
  • up and recycling
  • natural health and healing
  • conservation
  • alternative education
  • spirituality
  • natural building
  • communal and tribal activity 
  • deep ecology… one or all of these. 🙂

Our group is also designed to help us find each other… to get to know:

  • who is out there
  • what we each do
  • what we are passionate about, and
  • how we go about our creative work

so we can:

  • share and receive the wisdom of other people’s wisdom and experience
  • support each other in creative and natural lifestyling, and
  • benefit from each other’s culturally creative products and services…

what ever we are wanting or needing.


ZENTIENCE will start soon

on the last Sunday of the month
