A common purpose and a shared intention...
Jo Woods & Sarah Winter, Open Floor teachers from Melbourne, Australia, are using Open Floor movement practice to reshape the future. Here they talk about a special event dedicated to raising funds and awareness about the climate crisis with their Dance in the Hills extended community.
Sarah and Jo gathered with their Dance in the Hills community the Saturday before the global School Strike for Climate Change to create a large, shared art banner which was then taken to the rally, where an estimated 150,000 people marched, peacefully together in downtown Melbourne.
The Banner making was followed by a dance where the community practiced moving together as a group to learn how to show up united. The banner reads:
System Change NOT Climate Change
All profits from this community dance were donated to the Great Forest National Park scheme
