On Vashon Island June 22-24 2018, ten organizations are collaborating to bring together 250 artists & changemakers from around the PNW bioregion.
Our highest goal is to foster Connection, Creativity, & Collaboration amongst participants.
If you can imagine a mix between an arts festival, conference, activist training, & family reunion; you’re on track to understanding the dynamism of what we have in store…
The Revival Gathering themes will revolve around personal & collective story work, artful activism, authentic relating games, live music & celebration, health & wellness, spoken word, transformative tech & media, participatory art creation, nature connection, mindfulness activities, kinesthetic movement, permaculture projects, conflict transformation, youth empowerment, gender reconciliation, philanthropy, sacred sexuality, immersive theatre, etc etc etc…
***We’re incredibly grateful to have received a sizable grant after our 2017 “Art of Social Change Tour” to continue hosting tours, trainings, & gatherings such as this. We’ll be launching a crowdfund campaign and requesting more grant funds in the Spring, to help bring this robust gathering into being***
The container will be designed and held by a diverse & experienced team of creative facilitators.
To create the conditions for Connection, Creativity, & Collaboration to flourish within, we’ll be employing many cultural & facilitative techniques:
Open space technology, collaborative ritual, council exercises, group storytelling, small & whole group processes, keynote presentations, participatory art creation, the work that reconnects, community asset mapping, improvisation games, needs & offers markets, and whatever else wants to emerge.
We’re in conversation with the following organizations about helping to lead & sponsor:
- Music as Medicine Foundation
- Thriving Communities Conference
- Salish Sea Marine Sanctuary
- Protectors of the Salish Sea
- Songlines of Port Townsend
- The Backbone Campaign
- Authentic Relating Seattle
- Re/Culture Media
- Permaculture Action Network
- Imagine Music and Arts Festival
- Zepto Space
- …Know of organizations that would benefit by participating? Contact us about it!
Further Pertinent Details (more to come)…
There will be a scholarship fund crowdsourced in the spring, to promote the participation of youngers, elders, and POC from around the bioregion.
There will be nearby housing and “glamping” tents setup, for elders & those who don’t have camping gear.
There is a design session for this gathering scheduled for December 2017. Please Contact Us for more info.
