ANCIENT FUTURES : NEWEARTH FESTIVAL
Ancient Futures festival took place in Bali in April 2017. Having become disillusioned with the parochial view of festivals and gatherings as places for escape and hedonism, a burning desire grew within Jenna to move towards working solely on events which had a real purpose and meaning. In 2016, through a series of beautifully synchronistic circumstances, she was offered the opportunity to curate and produce her own festival; one with a true purpose.
Jenna believes that as a Planetary Community we are experiencing healing (evolutionary) crises in every aspect of our lives and we need to endow ourselves with the tools to navigate this transition on both the personal and trans-personal level. We are compelled to come together to connect and create tangible solutions to what does not serve us as individuals or as communities for the benefit of all humanity. Ancient Futures Festival was born to provide a space to do this through the co-creation of an alchemical environment in play, celebration, nourishment, healing, learning and teaching.
Ancient Futures was a seed event for visionary creatives, change makers, and thought leaders who are bridge-builders between communities across the world and who thereby inspire others. Ancient Futures brought together world class speakers and teachers, musicians (Tora, HumanExperience, Dirtwire, Fanna-Fi-Allah), artists (Luke Brown, Mark Lee), performers, wisdom keepers, healers, chefs and many more over a magical five days.
