Faces. I.
As I look around I see strangers. New faces. Unknown names.
But every day I see these faces.
They become a constant in a changing space.
I try to memorize these faces. Listen to their voices. Watch the movement of their bodies. 
We share the same space, the faces and I.
Little by little our bodies settle into the same rhythm. The faces become familiar, their voices known. We are breathing the same air, the faces and I.
As we change the space around us, we move together, we move closer.
We become a collective, the faces and I.
The faces and I do not know everything about each other.
We learn as we go.
We move together.
We share the same space.
We breathe the same air.
We are a collective, the faces and I.


Fremtidslinjen is a 3-year education for young people with special needs, also called a STU. The students on Fremtidslinjen are young people with general learning difficulties, ADHD and Autism. On top of that many of the students also have complicated diagnoses such as Borderline, OCD and schizophrenia. The purpose of a STU is to give the students general education and a skill enhancement they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. In addition to that the students have to gain knowledge of worklife, so they are able go on to a work or further education afterwards. A STU has to be organised so it fits the individual student, not the other way around. What we do, havs to make sense for the student, which demands presence.

Fremtidslinjen was established in 2011. And since we have aimed to develop our learning and skills within the pedagogy of special education. Among others we have together with a German school participated in a project over the duration of 2 years with the purpose of developing new ways to measure skills. The difficulties our students are struggling with, are daily challenging us and occasionally demands us to question the possibilities of the pedagogy of traditional education. We try to be curious, present and to find new ways to make sure that we move forward, and ultimately help the students to make the most out of their potential.

Sisters Hope is a Copenhagen-based performance-group and movement with an associated international troupe of performers from various backgrounds. Sisters Hope was founded in 2007 by Gry Worre Hallberg and Anna Lawaetz and is currently led by Gry Worre Hallberg. Sisters Hope operate in the intersection of performance art, research, activism and pedagogy. They draw on immersion and intervention when they manifest on the stages of everyday life and beyond. They are working proactively toward manifesting a more sensuous and poetic educational system. Currently working to open and unfold more sensuous modes of learning in the large-scale Nordic project Sisters Academy.

Sisters Academy is a school in a world and society where the sensuous and poetic mode of being is at the center of all action and interaction. It defines the primary mode of being and is the values on which all societal institutions are building – including the school. Thus Sisters Academy is the school in what we term a sensuous society – A potential new world arising from the post-economical and ecological crisis. Between 2014-2020 Sisters Academy will manifest in a series of Nordic countries and potentially beyond as we create otherworldly boarding schools and take over the leadership of a series of actual upper secondary schools
