Loam Listen is an expression of our belief at Loam that creative community can be a catalyst for resilience and reimagination in the heart of climate chaos. As the systems surrounding us collapse, it feels especially vital to nurture new ways of being through creating spaces for radical artists, activists, educators, and entrepreneurs in our community to share their stories on their terms. How can we continue to grow our capacity to be in right relationship with the Earth and with each other? How can we alchemize our personal practices into the seeds for cultivating collective liberation? How can we subvert the status quo, sustain biodiversity, and honor grief and joy and everything in between during this turbulent era of political polarization and digital isolation? With Loam Listen, we want to explore these questions in conversation with our constellation of creatives who are responding to the climate crisis with a commitment to imagination, compassion, and care.
