The art farm is a movement. They're a group of people -- art farmers - who want to create powerful change in our lives and communities.Why change? Because change is needed. Conventional ways of seeing and doing things aren't working any more. Resources are shrinking while population numbers explode. We need to shift our minds and behavior to meet the challenges of the modern age.Art farmers follow a simple equation: art + nature = change. Founded on five acres of traditional Squamish territory just north of Gibsons, BC, the art farm movement brings art and nature-based innovators together with people devoted to change - to dialogue, to reflect and to share ideas, energy, resources, and skills in order to make change happen. In other words, they farm change through ideas, innovation and skill-sharing at the grassroots level using nature and the arts as their guides.Art + Nature = Change. Through residencies, workshops, productions, festivals, outreach and education, the art farm creates change in peoples' lives and communities by facilitating this equation. the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
