What is a ManiFestival project?
A ManiFestival project is a co creative project. We are creative and social beings and to create and socialize give us a sense of belonging and meaning in and of its self. We believe that when given the opportunity to create together, a sense of meaning and purpose arises that is bigger than each and one of us on our own, to be a contributing part of something that is much bigger than one self, to be a part of the whole. This is a very satisfying experience!
We strive to make a sustainable festival!
One of the most fundamental challenges in our time is how we, as humanity, can come together to live, prosper and develop our society in a sustainable way that allows the ecosystems and nature that we are a part of to do the same. We want Into the Woods to be a positive force for change, where together we explore ways to live in a more sustainable way.
Everything starts with taking care of our own shit!
Everything starts with taking care of our own shit, literally and figuratively speaking:) Buy applying to lead and manifest a ManiFestival project at Into the Woods we need your assurance that you will leave the sight the way you found it. The dissembling and waste management of the materials we use is a fundamental part of the creative process in making a sustainable festival, and in the bigger picture a sustainable society. We are surrounded by fantastic inventions and creations that makes our lives better and easier that all started as creative insights, however, the consequences of those insights and inventions when brought in to the material world has many times not been adressed in a very creative way. The seas are filling up with plastic as a consequence of an creative insight that once where manifested, a genius or a catastrophic insight? We want Into the Woods and the ManiFestival projects to be a case in sustainable creativity witch implies taking responsibility for the whole cycle from creating to destructing, leaving but positive traces.
There are of course different ways to do your project sustainable, if you are using natural, decomposable materials and are building something that is ment to last, then let us have a chat about leaving the creation as a part of the Woods.
