Through art we celebrate “unity within diversity, without hindering diversity within unity” – Blaikie, Road Man of the Native American Church. As an exercise, it is through these rich and diverse perspectives of all peoples that we can see the uniting thread of the universe expressed in color, symbols, love, and mythology.
This exhibit is a fundraiser for the 2017 Art Activation and Ancestral Wisdom gathering at the Yumake Ecolodge in Santa Marta, Colombia that will take place from December 9th – 16th. Because Sierra Nevada is considered to be on the heart meridian line of the Earth, this gathering aims to act as an energetic acupuncture point to activate the Seven Pillars of: Wisdom Exchange between Tribes and Cultures, Ecology, Community Building, Visual Arts, Music, Nutrition Awareness, and Healing Arts, for the betterment of the world.
Organized using the Kogi methodology of transformation and agreements, this gathering acts as an introduction and contact relationship building point between indigenous tribes of Colombia and forward thinkers of the modern world using workshops, dialogue, art making, ceremony and celebration. A community mural with be painted by visiting artists to leave the legacy of creativity and wisdom at this location for the generations to come.
This gathering acknowledges that indigenous people and modern minds have crucial tools and perspectives to share in order for the prophecy of Peace and Environmental Balance to arise in our lifetime. It is created in the name of protecting the sacred waters of our ourselves and the Earth. It is the second gathering in series leading to 2020 Saquenzipa.
