TOPICAL STATEMENT

As one of the early generations of the anthropocene — we are only just becoming aware of the recent effects of our species on the biosphere. Yet we find ourselves needing to adapt — and fast. A re-invention of ourselves as a beneficial (or at least benign) part of local and global complex ecologies is now required in order to regenerate these systems on which we depend.

By bringing together ideas and interventions from a variety of disciplines and understandings, can we address these complex issues more effectively? And what are the creative, inventive and inspiring toolkits that might help assist such a large-scale re-imagining of our cultural narratives we have of ourselves as a species?

In this event we seek to explore the creative spaces between cultures, ecologies, sciences, creative practises, psychology and technologies. In sharing our understandings, explorations and discoveries we hope to inspire ourselves to momentary fluidities of perception that might prove useful in nudging our own hardened cultural paradigms and silos of specialisation. » Read more

Citizens of Good Heart

The Kauaeranga Valley stretches into the heart of the Coromandel ranges. Its a DoC park, a beautiful valley with tracks and waterfalls, a microclimate with all manner of fruit and vegetables, a centre for creative and positive alternatives - and its the venue for a 3 and a half day gathering organised by folk from Heart Politics, an informal social change group thats been meeting since 1989. This year its all change - the gathering is a mix of tenting and bunk rooms at the Education Camp; the event is completely embedded in the ecology and spirit of place. » Read more
