Possibilize connects, inspires and activates people to think and act in possibilities, in every situation. We do this by bringing creative projects to life in which limitations are a source of inspiration.
Possibilize acts as a platform that creates opportunities for ambitious project leaders who want to organise groundbreaking projects, such as Sencity, the international music event for the deaf, hard of hearing and hearing. Young people participate in all facets and at all levels of the project organisation. They discover hidden talents and develop them further. To eventually realise a project that at first sight seemed impossible. This allows them to see with their own eyes how the impossible can be made possible. And with this awareness, they can inspire other young people in their environment to think 'out of the box' as well.
The words 'can not' do not exist within Possibilize. Because we believe that anything is possible if you really go for something and think in terms of possibilities instead of limitations (what we call possibilizing); that you can realise every goal and every dream. This belief, and previously successful 'impossible' projects, gives young people energy and self-confidence.
Possibilize not only wants to inspire individuals to push their boundaries, but also inspire companies and organisations. We do this by also empowering them and involving them in the organisation of groundbreaking projects. Because something like a major music event cannot be organised on your own.
In this way we have built up a large network of partner organisations all over the world that work together on the development of talent. From large organisers of dance parties to small foundations that support a specific target group.
Limitation = enrichment
In addition to inspiring people, Possibilize shows through close collaboration with certain target groups (including young people with a physical, mental, visual or auditory disability) that artists with disabilities actually enrich the cultural landscape. Because they can use their disability to their advantage. For example, a deaf dancer has tremendous expression in his body language. And blind photographers (yes, they exist!) put a lot more fantasy into their photos. People with and without a disability can therefore learn a lot from each other.
