CO-CREATE

The Earth is speaking — how do we respond?
That essential question is at the heart of the
ONE WORLD Festival of Arts & Imagination
The ONE WORLD Festival leverages the power of our collective creativity to imagine solutions that will galvanize our communities and drive real change at this defining moment in our lifetime.

IMAGINE

Imagination is more important than knowledge. 
For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.

COMMUNITY

The ONE WORLD Festival of Arts & Imagination activates our social imagination to envision and enact change.

 

ONE WORLD builds capacity and connective tissue among socially-engaged artists, cultural organizers, businesses, policy-makers and thought leaders committed to environmental sustainability and equity.

Culture – the way we express ourselves and understand each other – can bind us together as one world.
