From the moment they met, Elise and Remi found in each other the same intention to sprout more love, empathy, and connection in the world. They share the belief that the world we live in is a world we all actively create.
The Transformatorium began as a collaborative and experiential meeting-place for dreaming the world they wish to live in, and building it together, alongside others who share the same need to connect with hearts open.
Their passion for experimentation, playfulness, child-like curiosity and sincere self-exploration laid a common ground in which to plant these seeds, that will one day bear the fruit of their shared wishes. The Transformatorium is the garden in which they nurture and tend to these values as they grow out of the earth and into the world.
