Outsider Artist Collective are a group of artists who collaborate with different communities to explore ideas about living together ‘under one sky’. During their residency, they will explore ideas using the moon as a platform to hold group gatherings prior to equinox/solstice dates. What is the moon's significance in our daily life as an embodiment of the things we’ve lost sight of? How can we reconnect? What does a 21st century myth/ritual/connection/story look like? Find out while sitting around a fire listening to cultural rhythms, stories, myths and exploring the relationships and the effects of the moon on nature and our lives.
