Squam. Drømme om kreativt fællesskab.

Squam Retreats from Squam on Vimeo.

Squam – creativity as a way of life. Deres mission:

“Squam promotes creativity as a way of life.

We teach, inspire and heal. Our community receives encouragement, training, inspiration and experience that expands their creative spirit. We help dissolve restrictions and limitations on the definition of what it means to be an artist.

We celebrate joy, fun, pleasure, beauty and the natural world. We offer national and international retreats; nurture an online community open to all; and produce publications in both traditional and emerging media formats. We help support our community through the sales of their high quality original work. We are a proud member of 1% for the Planet and our donation goes directly to Squam Lakes Conservation Society.

For all of us at squam, it’s not just what we put out into the world, but the environment that we create in our worklife that must uphold our core values. In order to inspire others to live their best lives, we actively foster a professional hub where each member of the team is valued, has a voice, and is encouraged to take creative risks.
The result is a workplace that is fun and spectacularly productive.”

… “Come as you are. Leave as you want to be.”…
(citat v. en af Squams andre videoer)

Forbrug. Fællesskab. Identitet. Fortælling.

“Vi har mistet følelsen af at høre hjemme i verden. Vi fokuserer i stedet på forbrug, rigdom, magt og at øge vores status. Det er alt sammen kompensation for en identitet, der ellers burde vokse frem af samvær. Det er godt for erhvervslivet, men egentlig blot en opskrift på menneskelig elendighed”, siger Charles Eisenstein og pointerer, at vi nu har gennemlevet 2.000 års teknologiske fremskridt fokuseret på at skabe nye ting. Hvorfor arbejder vi stadigvæk lige så hårdt?
“Det gør vi, fordi vores forbrug konstant øges. Men sådan behøver det ikke at være.”

“Selvbedraget må slutte”. Artikel m. Charles Eisenstein. Magisterbladet s. 22-23

How do we change the world? Change the story.
“The greatest illusion of this world is the illusion of separation.”
