We organise ourselves as an open system that invites participation, co-operation and cross-pollination. We function as an enabling and containing space, meaning that we enable and support ourselves and others to do this work. We also take a critical and scientific stance towards our work and therefore continuously and systematically reflect, enquire, research and make the results of our thinking and research public. We do not believe that we own our knowledge or thinking so we rather spend our energy to enable, develop and support competent and reflective practice than trying to “protect, patent or package” what we do. We are deeply aware of the stark divisions in terms of economic means and access to services such as world-class education in South Africa and abroad, so we also try to make our work accessible to communities who would otherwise be excluded from services such as ours.
