Objectify 2014

Posted: October 26, 2014 by lambentI2e in Events / Gatherings, Workshop

Again we return to the lush Conondale rainforest for this years edition of Objectify.

Workshops & performances from local and international teachers, a bush gala show, endless fire, food, a dance party, and a bunch of talented people to enjoy it with.

Each year we have created a context for what Objectify is, yet after each year reflecting back on what everyone brought to the space the context did not capture what happened. Objectify is not just a circus and fire festival, nor is it just a passion and flow arts festival.  Objectify is a space for our innate desire to play. A play festival.

Play is the foundation of creativity and innovation. Immensely pleasurable, it energizes & enlivens us. It eases our burdens, renews our natural sense of optimism and opens up new possibilities. Science now knows that play is a profound biological process, evolved over eons in many species to promote survival. It shapes our brain and makes us smarter, more adaptable, fosters empathy and makes possible complex social groups.

Did you know that people who play more, especially later in life, on average live longer and retain greater cognitive ability.

Play is the cornerstone of our lives. This year the theme, The Fire Within, aims to unlock any blocks in our desire to play.

Discover what fuels your fire. Find your flame.
