      Earthdance is a world of communities, working and playing together to create a culture of peace, through music and dance events, synchronized global link-ups, and social activism. More than just an epic party, Earthdance is a flash forward to a peaceful future. Origin Story: The history of Earthdance lives through the people who were there.. ...the smiling faces and hugs in photos, the bouncing and swirling dancers in videos, the ever spinning DJs, the multitude of artists and performers, the families who put the whole thing together, year after year, and our charities, keeping it all real. Earthdance has been a journey of celebration, service, beauty, struggle, ecstasy, and love, beyond words. The Earthdance story begins in 1996, when London-based musician and event producer, Chris Deckker (Medicine Drum, Return To The Source) had a vision in the Kings Chamber of the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt, of a synchronized, multi-location psytrance dance party. October 4th, 1997 The first Earthdance Planetary Dance Party for Peace materialized, with 22 locations in 18 countries, in support of Tibet. In 1999, Earthdance moved its base to San Francisco, aligned its mission with the annual United Nations Peace Day, and began partnering with other international peace events, organizations, and companies. In 2001, the Earthdance International non-profit organization was formed to coordinate the annual charity festival, and in 2003, the Earthdance Global for-profit company was formed to develop year-round Earthdance projects, and provide support for the non-profit organization and festival. From its psyrave roots, Earthdance has grown to become one of the largest globally synchronized music and dance events, having been held in over 1,000 locations in 80 countries. In 2020, the 24th annual Earthdance Global Peace Party will include numerous public events, countless private parties, and high social media activity across multiple platforms. Music & Dance Events: The annual Earthdance Global Peace Party is a wild organic mix of events. Outdoor trance parties, destination music festivals, gatherings in parks, events in public spaces, concerts, club nights, nature campouts, flash mobs, and house parties, all connected online via social networks. Electronic dance music, beats, and DJs are the foundation of most Earthdance events. But the music and performance genres represented are as diverse as the locations. From psytrance to neo-soul, dubstep to world music, fire spinning to belly dancing, the Earthdance vibe is vividly eclectic and fun. Earthdance is also a massive synchronicity generator, with all the connections and shared experiences made at Earthdance events around the world, over so many years. Global Link-Up: All Earthdance events join in a synchronized Global Link-Up & Prayer for Peace. The Global Link-Up and playing of the Prayer for Peace music track, at the same time at all locations, is a profound moment of shared intention for peace. The link-up is an affirmation of peace on all levels personal, family, community, nations, and peace with the Earth itself. The Earthdance Peace Watch widget and app extends the annual global link-up moment into a daily synchronized event. Peace & Social Activism: Earthdance is aligned with the UN International Day of Peace that takes place on September 21st each year. The United Nations Peace Day is devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace and non-violence, both within and among all nations and peoples. *EVERY Earthdance event partners with a local peace, sustainability, or social justice charity, promoting the organization, featuring them at events, and donating 50% of event profits to support their work. ---------------------------------------------------------------- For the first time in history... EARTHDANCE ASHEVILLE 2020 In 2004, Burning Man co-founder, Larry Harvey wrote the "Ten Principles" as guidelines for the newly-formed Regional Network. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community ethos and culture, as it had organically developed since the event's inception. We honor this reflection through our gathering... 1.) Radical Inclusion Anyone may be a part. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community. 2.) Gifting We are devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value. 3.) Decommodification In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience. 4.) Radical Self-reliance We encourage the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources. 5.) Radical Self-expression Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient. 6.) Communal Effort Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction. 7.) Civic Responsibility We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws. 8.) Leaving No Trace Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them. 9.) Participation Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart. 10.) Immediacy Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience. **************************************************************** IMPORTANT INFO: --- Earthdance Asheville 2020 is a SKILLSHARE, FAMILY REUNION, and NETWORK OPPORTUNITY, in a National Forest Group Camp.
