Content Partner Spotlight: Living Village Culture

LVC-Logo---edited

Living Village Culture is a collective of educators and creatives dedicated to bridging art, immersive experience and activism to build awareness, strengthen relations and align in service with each other, the planet and the Sacred. Our work is to explore and shape the culture that emerges when we all come together from diverse walks of life with imagination and reverence.

 

After years spent in global underground festivals and community living, we have found that the best way to influence culture is to make it ourselves. We do this by producing educational environments within festival culture, as well as independent retreats, symposiums, performances and media to create transformative, spirit-based experiences. This work nurtures connection and collaboration within the growing network of planetary activists, weaving a web that is more than the sum of its parts.

 

 

What does Living Village Culture do?

Includes education and fundraising for local and global activist causes, creating community ritual and ceremony, producing educational events and hosting visiting elders and mentors.
