Land and Social Change

Our time on this earth is both fleeting and precious; we must make the best use of our time and resources as caretakers for all future beings. Find here an inspirational array of speakers sharing their stories and skills to help us move towards our collective potential in connection with land and society. Here you will find the Land Tent, the Social Change Space, the ‘We the Uncivilised’ Lodge and Trackways.

The wetheuncivilised Lodge is back - Join us in co-creating a culture of connection and belonging, as we explore the possibilities and challenges of meeting these times of ecological and social crisis through activism in its many forms.

Permaculture, Nature connection and indigenous wisdom with Caspar Brown

What can we learn from indigenous cultures that can help us transition to a healthier ecological paradigm and where does permaculture and nature connection fit into the whole story? An open discussion and sharing.

 

The Extinction of Addiction: The Evolution of Self – Caspar Walsh -From personal addictions to addictions on a global scale (to money, power, fossil fuels etc), this workshop will explore how addiction affects and impacts all our lives and where personal healing and peace can be found.

 

The Joys of Decolonisation

When we think about racism, decolonisation, oppression, sexism, diversity, our hearts can begin to beat faster and dread consumes our minds. The shame, guilt, and trauma of systems and behaviours that have long been tying us up in knots, wringing out our purity and dimming down the human spirit.

This workshop offers space for expressing the unexpressed aches of colonialism. You will hear the story of how one woman found joy through her process of DECOLONISATION and addressing uncomfortable conversations. Whatever sector you work in, there has never been a more important conversation than decolonisation. Beginning with a process of self-interrogation and ending in dance, this workshop will leave you with tools to inspire your liberation.
