Manifesto

We, the artists, are the collective key to imagining our new world. We are the visionaries at the centre of the coming storm. This storm will see unprecedented people power sweep the globe. We will feel that power. We will be that power. We already are.

We are the future makers. We draw from the well of the unknown and make the impossible real. We create connection and reach for transcendence.  We make the future possible. 

Together we will grow a movement so magnificent it makes its own weather. We will regenerate the forests. Nourish the soil. Cool the oceans. Return the water to the rivers. Honour the elders. Listen to the children. Hold each other in struggle and in celebration.

We can start today. We have already begun.
It’s all possible. When we dare to dream of the future we deserve, the rest is just logistics.
Dare to dream.
Dream your wildest.
Dream unprecedented dreams.
And bring them home.
