Part of the team is flying out to Iceland this week and after spending some time in Reykjavik exploring Icelands thriving fashion and art scene, we’ll be joining Sagafest. On May 23-24 a group of very inspiring people from around the world is coming together to co-create an arts and music festival on the Stokkseyrarsel sustainable farm in Iceland.
The festival serves as a space where people can collect and share stories, and build authentic connections. It will be focused on vulnerability, community, sustainability and transformation. Saga Fest will feature 65+ artists, musicians, entreprneurs and friends from all over the world, including local showcases of artists and musicians from the villages of Eyrarbakki and Stokkseyri.
“We believe in the power of sharing stories to connect us to each other and our shared purpose.”
“In Iceland, we have been told by scientists, writers, politicians and community leaders that our world is suffering from large-scale challenges like climate change. But many feel that these issues are “too big” to change, and that there isn’t much we can do to build a more thriving and just world.
But we will not idly stand by and accept this fate. We know that a small group of people, driven by shared purpose, can truly catalyze large-scale movements. They always have. Our vision is to help create this community through arts, music and storytelling.”
