CULTURES FOR HUMANITY

WE NURTURE A CULTURE OF PEACE AND INTEGRITY

We aspire to honour and include the spirit, originality and creative expressions of all our peoples, cultures and tribes to jointly shape the integral and sustainable development of humankind.

An inclusive Earth civilization

requires that the timeless wisdom of each of our cultures, and the creative expressions of all our fellow beings be fully voiced and deeply heard,

so we can jointly shape a culture of humanity, peace and integrity.

Cultures emerge from human interaction with the nature we inhabit, and with the mystery of life. 

Our cultures shape our humanity. 

Art expresses and evolves our humanity. 

Creativity enables us to restore our humanity and revitalize our cultures, 

especially in times of crisis and transition, such as we now face on a global scale. 

The Cultures for Humanity programme highlights the foundational importance of treasuring and learning from and with all the world’s cultures, and enabling each culture to make its invaluable contribution to the global table of a humanity in unity. 

It recognises and supports the transformative role humanist artists play in building peace, healing conflict, renewing culture and regenerating nature, especially in times of local or global crisis.

It stimulates and unleashes the innate creativity and artistry of each individual participant to envision and enact their contribution to our collective future.

Overall this programme seeks to nurture a culture of humanity grounded in peace and integrity.

"CULTURES FOR UNITY"

PROJECT

Cultural Renewal

for an Inclusive Earth Civilisation

This is a transcultural initiative of cultural renewal for an inclusive Earth civilisation.

The purpose is to ensure that the inimitable gifts of each culture are distinctly valued and integrated within the heritage   of our collective humanity. We work with an entire culture, people or nation, to surface the shared ethos, core values and foundational stories that connect and unite people across differences. We particularly focus on societies that have undergone crisis, conflict or transition, during which cultures and populations have been subject to trauma, stress, neglect or manipulation. We are purposefully building on the decade long work of TRANS4M and Theatre of Transformation in countries like Slovenia, Palestine, Jordan and Zimbabwe.

Mobility and funding permitting, the group travels to Home for Humanity’s integral home campus in France, to finalise the process, and for an interactive presentation of their process and final impact locally and to the international community in Geneva.

THEATRE

OF TRANSFORMATION

Building Peace and Justice

"Theatre of Transformation" was developed at the University of Oxford under the auspices of the 'Enacting Global Transformation Initiative' at the Centre for International Studies, by Rama Mani with diverse collaborators in academia, governance, civil society and the arts.

It is a powerful methodology and catalytic artform that engages global leaders and policy makers as well as local peace and justice practitioners and crisis-affected communities to respond humanely, creatively and effectively to crises.

Through enacted real-life testimonies of transformation from around the world, it takes participants through an experiential, interactive four-stage process to transform themselves and their societies, in order to enact human and global transformation.

THE POETRY

OF INTEGRAL DEVELOPMENT

Unleashing Genius

This workshop is an invitation to embark on a participatory poetic journey of regeneration. Transformative poetry – fused with movement, dance and integration exercises – guides us  through a holistic development process via a series of inner stages: from initiation to integration. This work(out)shop on the Integral Poetics of Regeneration enables us to experience and release our personal genius and collective power.

TRANSFORMATIVE

ARTISTS RESIDENCIES

Each year, we collaborate with transformative artists who have committed their life and artwork to humanist and ecological causes. During their residency at the Integral Home Campus, Artists co-create a joint artistic project that contributes to the emergence of a culture of humanity and an inclusive Earth civilization. These Art projects generally nurture both cultural renewal as well as ecological regeneration. The residency culminates in a public event for the local-global community. These events provide an opportunity for the community to engage with artists on the creative process and to share their own creative expressions. The Transformative Artists Residency serve to promote Art for Humanity, and activate the inherent creativity of all humans. They inculcate in the wider public a culture of humanity, while furthering the overall shared vision of creating a united Earth family.
