20 ARTISTS FOR 20 DAYS, BROUGHT TOGETHER IN AN OFFGRID JUNGLE LABORATORY UNDER THE GOAN SUN, IN RESPONSE TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS. OPEN CONVERSATIONS, RADICAL COLLABORATIONS AND A RECONCILIATION OF HUMANKIND AND THE NATURAL WORLD. WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US IN SOWING THE SEEDS OF CHANGE. WILDBIYOO.

“Every moment of major social change requires a collective leap of imagination. Political transformation must be accompanied not just by spontaneous and organised expressions of unrest and risk, but by an explosion of mass creativity.”- Jeff Chang.

WHAT

The Tribe is dedicating January 2020 to the arts to summon progressive thinkers and creatives to join us in reckoning with the greatest existential crisis of our times. The mission of the month is to investigate how creatives can facilitate new dialogue, inspire social and political transformations and reimagine our relationship to nature in response to climate breakdown.  With both self directed and guided residencies, workshops & debate forums, unmatched opportunities for collaborations, play, experimentation and adventure, residents become part of a thriving community of changemakers standing up for the Planet.

WHERE

At The Tribe Goa jungle hub, a 14 acre ecovillage and research centre in South Goa, nestled in the Malabar Coast moist forest at the foothills of the Western Ghats, one of the world's few and fragile biodiversity hotspots. Though fragmented and struggling in its battle with reckless human development and unchecked power, the area is awe-inspiring in its biodiversity and growing tide of community resilience.  Since 2016, The Tribe project has been on a mission to find ways to reconcile human development and biodiversity, with its Jungle Hub slowly but surely becoming an experimental research centre dedicated to exploring sustainable and regenerative practices in ecology & farming, wildlife rescue & conservation, architecture, arts, community-building, ecotourism and waste management.

WHY

With Extinction Rebellion and school strikes sweeping their way around the globe in demand of greater climate action, community awareness is greater than ever. Governments and corporations are running out of excuses - the clock is ticking for all of us. Faced with climate breakdown, there can be no borders, no race, no privilege. Only a collective thirst for transparency, inclusiveness, open dialogue and respect for others and for our Planet. Wildbiyoo's ambition is to rally artists across the globe to help us build on this momentum and inspire people the world over to step up for real and inspiring change.
