Newly imagineered for 2018, the Sacred Activist Sanctuary is a peaceful and welcoming space for the creatively curious, activists, ecowarriors, co-operators, community seekers, joy bringers and the grief-stricken.
A village of tipis, benders and other low-impact dwellings around a central fire, this is a place of sharing, learning, reflection, action and recuperation.
A community vibe, warm hearth and mug of tea await visitors – along with the chance to get involved in sacred, creative activism in defence of our wild spaces. Sing with trees, grieve for lost species, celebrate nature’s bounty and cycles, learn about the international Extinction Rebellion… or just take some time out from the hustle of festival life. Discover how to tread lightly on the earth and to protect the commons – land, air, water – that belong to us all.
The central fire and communal shelters are open and inviting for stories and music, poetry and workshops. There’s interactive art, junk sculpture by Jessica Rost, a sweat lodge and performances of Andrew Boyd’s Twelve Characters in Search of an Apocalypse.
Plus, discover your inner Katniss Everdeen or Robin Hood on the neighbouring Archery Range!
