Magic, Mischief & Mind-Bombs: A Storytelling Workshop for Change-Makers


Magic, Mischief & Mind-Bombs: A Storytelling Workshop for Change-Makers

Speakers: Tommy Crawford (Dancing Fox), Brian Fitzgerald (Dancing Fox)

Human conformity, a powerful force for and against change, is pivotal in societal shifts. In this collaborative workshop, we’ll examine key factors and explore how the electronic music community can foster behaviors advancing a delightful, thriving world.

About this program

Dancing Fox, a creative agency, only collaborates with artists, NGOs, and other entities that specialize in the art of "culture hacking". Tommy and Brian, former Greenpeace campaigners, lead a collective of artists and activists with aligned values, designing creative experiences that inspire joy and hope.

The workshop delves into behavioral economics, culture change, and historical insights – aiming to teach us how to create a future to be proud of for upcoming generations. We will work towards answers for these questions:

– How do fringe ideas stay fringe for decades, and then suddenly whoosh into mainstream acceptance?

– How can festivals possibly contribute to a shift in global attitudes that would help create a more thriving, safe and magical world?

Who is this program for?

This workshop is part of ADE Green, and is designed for artists, event and festival organisers, sustainability event managers, and anyone wanting to create a more invitational, joyful, and hope-fuelled form of activism. Please note that you need an ADE Pro orADE Green ticket to join this program. For more ADE Green programs, check here.
