Visual Identity Communication

We explored using drawing and clay as the main media for the fruition of our logo and visual identity communication. We also dialogued significantly, and discussed multiple perspectives and expressions of the ideas that were emerging. We collaborated with the following artists & graphic designers:

  • Peng-Ean Khoo, poet-artist
  • Jaqueline Low, clay artist
  • Paul Teh Chee Mun, graphic designer

The intent is that this shall be a living evolution of our discoveries and growth of the work and cultural identity of Human Engagement Studio as a community.

 

Namecard

The namecard is conceived as a door, with a stained-glass window.

On the other side of the namecard, is an empty circle, potent with latent discovery awaiting living expressions. IMG_3573It is an invitation for engagement, for self and community discovery, growth, and collaboration.

Human Engagement Studio speaks, “Welcome.”

 

Open Embrace

We imagine practising openness and loving non-judgment. Deep listening, compassionate dialogues, gentleness. And patience.

We imagine practising research-based pedagogies and lifelong learning.

We imagine creatively communicating, sharing and inspiring in multitudes of perspectives and forms.

We imagine possibilities of truths, goodness, kindness and beauty.

Most of all, we imagine personal and communities living love, compassion, joy, freedom, peace, harmony & well-being. With accountability & responsibility.

Honouring the six hearts coming together to unfold the blossoming of the wholehearted-centredness of Human Engagement Studio. Each selflessly holding each other.

The Window

It is a portal. You think you can see the other side. But it is only a window, until you enter the door.

IMG_3634The window gifts you glimpses of the joy of possibilities.

 

The Door

The door is the door to new possibilities, which can only be revealed if you enter to experience it. IMG_4768There is a handle, the door already is unlocked. The stranger just needs to turn the handle to open the door.

 

“Crow in the dark.” – Eustacia Cutler

By embracing the gift of change, we can move forward in our lives.

Freedom

“I wanted to say something spectacular about freedom. But to my own astonishment, all I can honestly utter is – balance.”

wildflowers

We started to get together one evening a week. To persistently figure out our inner dissatisfactions, discomforts, insecurities, hopes, desires, aspirations. There is no meeting agenda; only very heartful, honest dialogues, and lots and lots of laughter. Sometimes tears and furious explosions of exasperated distances. And so, we formed a dialogue of hearts group called wildflowers. Bring your dreams to the open field of open longings.

“This for me speaks my entire heart regarding education and friendship.”

 EdCamp Singapore #2, February 2017

EdCamp Singapore was birthed by the coming together of the founders of Human Engagement Studio, before the birth of Human Engagement Studio. The project was inspired by Vashima’s persistent questioning about teachers’ professional development and unconferencing as a forum for learning. We extended the original vision of EdCamp Foundation to include juniors and everyone is a teacher-learner. Vashima Goyal is one of the founders of Human Engagement Studio, as well as the Founder Director of EduRetreat.

Identity

IMG_3644

We don’t know if there is such a thing as identity sometimes. When we got together, it wasn’t so much that we needed to form an identity, but that we wanted to do things together. To work together, to offer our knowledge, experiences, skills, to play a part in offering something fruitful, helpful to our world. We know in our hearts, we can help to open up connections within and between ourselves. Communities aren’t abstract longings nor philosophies nor ideologies. Communities are made up by people who truly know and care for each other.

Trust

“I believe something can only cohere if we have inner resonances that even we ourselves cannot articulate, until it becomes; but only after we trust enough to keep walking towards it.”
