You can still read about the concept in the text below. We will open up the application form before next season.
We believe that when given the opportunity to create together, a sense of meaning and purpose arise that is bigger than each and everyone of us on our own. To be a contributing part of something that is bigger than one self, to be a part of the whole can be a very satisfying experience!
Everything starts with taking care of our own shit, literally and figuratively speaking :). By applying to lead and manifest a co-create 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 have many times not been addressed in a very creative way. The seas are filling up with plastic as a consequence of a creative insight that once was manifested, a genius or a catastrophic insight?
So if your project involves building something in the woods we would like you to see it as a case in sustainable creativity which 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 want to build something that is meant to last, then let us have a chat about leaving the creation as a part of the Woods.
Your Co-creative project will be part of Into the Woods program where participants can drop in to participate. The projects can extend over the week or be in the form of shorter workshops or activities. Buy leading a project you will have access to the festival, food and camping during the week/weekend depending on the extent of your project
