We are committed to using our talents for community healing, social and environmental justice and believe that tapping into Imagination leads to transformative action.
WHAT WE DO
In times of incertitude and disruption, we want to move our imagining into acting, seeing the crisis as an opportunity momentum. More than ever, we need to gather across borders, open our minds, open our hearts, listen to our body and Earth, open our will and face the challenges of our times.
Our intention is offering ImaginAction as a virtual and real space of learning and exchange for artists, activists, facilitators from all over the world. We want to intentionally participate in what Joanna Macy calls the Great Turning, for the regeneration of our world and life-sustaining human culture.
Our practices are inspired by Theatre of the Oppressed, Dragon Dreaming, Social Presencing Theatre, The Work That Reconnects, Drama Therapy, Emphatic Listening and more…
“Our most basic human right is, to imagine, to dream”
