Akasha Productions weaves the elements together to transform visions from the initial spark of inspiration into a manifest reality.
Akasha is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning ether or quintessence, from which the elements of earth, air, fire, and water are all created. Akasha Productions takes inspiration from a single creative moment and weaves elements together to make visions live and breathe. In curating and producing events, our main purpose is to create spaces and experiences that ignite a spark in the people who experience them, facilitating a greater alignment with purpose and better harmony with the earth and one another.
Akasha Productions collaborates and co-creates with incredible thought leaders and visionary creatives, breaking new ground together, redefining what is possible when we gather together to celebrate, learn, evolve, share, dance and play. We love and believe in what we do, and this is why we do it.
ABOUT JENNA ANSELL
