Presence & Encounter: 'How' We Meet Is As Important As 'Why'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

There is an art as well as a craft to staging inclusive, accessible, meaningful encounters.

Festivals are not about what to do, they are about how to be. In pre-modern times, communities had festivals once a week - sometimes more. In the absence of media, and institutions, these gatherings created trust, solidarity, and meaning. Those are also qualities that we need today.

Doors of Perception
As a writer, philosopher, and event producer, I lead workshops, and organise festivals, at the intersection between ecological and social change. Right now I’m finishing a book for Thames & Hudson. It's called Life’s Work: The Kinds Of Growth We Need
