The Vision

This festival will constitute a first step towards the creation of a cultural center, a future lab where mindfulness, sustainability, responsibility, the social future of humanity will be the topics of study, meeting, dialogue and creation.

We will be:

Engaging with nature in a healthy and sustainable manner

Growing our creativity through artistic workshops and projects around social sculpture.

Working on personal development and transformation through mindfulness, meditation and other inner work themes. 

Our medium and long term goals include festivals, seminars, workshops as well as the creation of a more permanent and ongoing place of meeting, study and co-creation.

Some ideas for our design:

For two weeks we will be in temporary community and sharing life, work, and fun together. The structure, rhythm and process of the festival will create a space for you in which to pursue your personal questions.

Every morning, we will offer an assembly where there is a framing concept for the day, journaling exercises and prompts.

Learn about creativity, yourself, and social change. Go light or go deep - find out for yourself what serves you best.

Festival daily activities:

Early morning movement, Tai Chi, Yoga, meditation, etc.

Healthy (organic as far as possible) meals enjoyed together

Hands-on group workshops during the day

Performances and/or open mic at night

Bonfire, singing, folk dancing, band, relaxing together

Dialoguing together about the social future.
