Alongside this we recognise that there are issues within activism that we also want to address. Burnout and poor wellbeing are huge issues and we want to incorporate ideas of self-care into all the work we do. At the forefront of everything we do is creativity, which has just as much of a place in social movements as economic models and food supplies!
So with these ideas, we decided to create a family-friendly festival, to bring together all walks of life into one space. In this space we could share ideas and skills, create memories and networks, ignite a movement for change and disperse, back to our communities and homes, to share our learnings. The festival will follow this structure, Share, Create, Ignite, Disperse… and we hope to see you there!
