Connect and co-create a new future with kindred activist spirits
Knowledge is power and it inspires the ethos of the Liminal Village where a gathering of dancing bodies also means a gathering of activated minds.
This 'conference' area was pioneered back in 2002 as a platform for presentations, master classes, discussion panels, lectures, workshops and documentaries. It has since become a space for engaging audiences with the ingenuity, thoughts, actions and projects of some of the world’s most powerful global voices.
The ‘Liminal’ - meaning the space in between - is a point of metamorphosis where transformation takes place and when visions crystalise into reality.
There were over 206 hours of talks, discussions and conferences at the Liminal Village during Boom 2018.
Liminal at Boom 2022 is inspired by the Anthropocene theme and will feature a plethora of thought-provoking films and discussions about some of the most important issues relevant to our existence as a species on the planet today.
We are particularly keen to see original formats of interactive workshops, magical, educational, hands-on, mind-blowing sessions that defy definition but that connect to being contemporary Quixotes striving for diverse Utopias while navigating the paradoxes of the Anthropocene.
One of the facts of the pandemic was the volatility and unpredictability of events around us. Liminal is the place for reflection, sensing and visioning the present and future. We cannot rush the quality of our program in a context of instability like the one we are experiencing. Thus, we took the decision to announce the final program in Spring 2022 in order to bring together a group of thinkers, movers and shakers with the greatest relevance and timeliness for Boom 2022.
(Selfie sticks, mobile phones and national flags are not transcendental or psychedelic at all. Just the opposite. They represent the dark side of the Anthropocene, as they disrupt the flow of Here & Now and interfere with the state of Oneness.)
