About us

We are story collectors and producers. Idea supporters and advisors. Filmmakers and photographers. Travel connoisseurs and designers of new territories. Music lovers and habitat shapers.

We are interested in the new, the courageous, the pioneering, the leaving the beaten track, the essence of things – trailblazing

We support people in their life’s dreams.

On this website we want to share this with you. On the way, on projects that we accompany, that we hear about, that we initiate and implement.

The people

Veronika Müller Mäder (1963)

Jürg Mäder (1964)

We have been travelling for more than 35 years in the connection of travel-education-expression-culture-art, have initiated various projects in the fields of education, art and biodiversity and have brought them to life as total works of art – as living space mosaics.

We go along with the transformation of the living and shape change in many ways.

In our work, we are interested in the essence that underlies things, place, living things, people. We give it expression, voice and support.

Our form of art follows the teachings of life, life turned towards life, the design of living space.

On the way

Being on the move has always been a central element of our work – also during the long period of being on location with our educational project „Scuola Vivante“. As a foundation for learning, networking, meeting and developing the inner and outer world

Leaving behind the known and familiar; setting out into new unknown worlds

The most beautiful things and the most sustainable projects have happened and emerged while we were on the road – in the unplannable and unpredictable.

In 2020, we founded the company trailblazing GmbH and have been on the road as digital nomads ever since

first of all, the first one to do so, and being the first to do something

On the road

…and always on the move.

    …and where are actually…

    At the beginning of March, we handed over the keys to Scuola Vivante, set our household goods, cleaned the flat and handed it in. Ready to go on our travels. Things turned out differently. The short version is kino-online.ch. The more detailed one here…
