Love: Art, Ideas, Music, Politics

Love: Art, Ideas, Music, Politics was a gathering that happened on 22 & 23 April, 2017 in Wollongong NSW. The theme of the festival was Love and it included workshops and activities that addressed this topic. We interpret the theme broadly and are interested in discussions that celebrate love’s power and share collectively in an exploration of its meaning. This might be a personal exploration of the way we interact with each other and the world or a discussion about how to deepen solidarity and peace, build strong communities and lessen alienation and inequality. It might be a creative workshop that explores love through movement, art or sound. Love: Art, Ideas, Music, Politics will also include musical performances and films about love.

The festival was held at the Kum Ba Yah Girl Guide Camp located on Mount Keira, Wollongong, set in tranquil bush land in a secluded escarpment location. This unique site has both indoor accommodation and outdoor camping areas. Meeting, camping and eating together over two days will facilitate a variety of encounters among participants in a relaxed atmosphere that favours slow, compassionate and loving dialogue.
