Let’s meet!

There is a lot going on in the world. We cannot do it all. Not to mention: the times are urgent… we must slow down. That being said, we would still like you to know about some of the electrifying, worlds-worlding, side-eye-glancing, upside-down and inside-out events and occurrences that ten is hosting, supporting or uplifting.

To understand water means understanding our existence, where we are, and where we are going. Join this online course curated and facilitated by Virginia Vigliar, and dive into the spiritual realms of water, discovering the deep sea and the memories it holds.

WHO: Dancing with Mountains Vunja! and ten
WHEN:
Sunday, June 30, 2024 | 8:30pm – 10:00pm IST
WHERE: Online everywhere

Times are changing, and new senses are required to be in generative response to the more-than-human dynamics afoot. One of the ways we are doing this as a learning cohort is to attempt an ambitious organizing of multiple communities around the world to host a trans-local concert of sorts. Check out this experimental video from Dancing with Mountains artist-in-residence, Krista Dragomer, inquiring into the nature of a carnival.

WHEN: Saturday, July 6, 2024 | 1:30pm – 5:00pm EDT
WHERE: Saint James Place | Great Barrington | Massachusetts | U.S.A.

One of the stickiest assumptions about being a modern self is that “we” always have a choice. It’s our inalienable right to choose, we hear. But what happens when choice starts misbehaving? In 2024, half of the planet’s human citizen-subjects will be heading to the polling booths to make their choices known. However, something about the reported intensification of distrust in democratic institutions, the oversimplification of politics into “us” versus “them” (bolstered by social media), the unmatchable forces of the posthuman disruption and climate collapse, makes this go-around particularly interesting.
