Global industrial civilization is hurtling headfirst into uncharted waters. Innumerable global crises – of which the COVID-19 pandemic is both a sample and symptom – continue to unfold and intensify, fundamentally changing our landscape of understanding.

Post-Crisis Immersion brings together a number of closely aligned networks for a series of in-depth lectures, workshops and experience-sharing, alongside collective work spaces that aim to facilitate transformation in our personal and communal lives.

Together we will work towards a deeper understanding of where we stand as a civilisation on the brink and how we might co-create a path to a future we want to inhabit.
27-28 of June and 4-5 of July - Collective Immersion
29 of June - 3 of July - Working groups days
Online events take place through Zoom, Jitsi and other forms
Offline events take place in your communities, in nature and wherever you are
We invite you to take part on your own or together with your community. You are welcome to engage at a level you feel comfortable with, whether that be listening, discussing or engaging in the working groups.

The program stretches from the authentic sharing of our experience and grief, through the wild undergrowth of community building, to practical topics and projects.

As a part of the exploration, the Immersion aims to open space to the voices which must be heard, and launch a new art-project on environmental transparency through lenses of indigenous people, "We Here: the story of land and its people".
The program overview:
Meeting and immersing in the context together
27 - 28 of June

The immersion will open with an introduction of the various communities in attendance followed by reflections on the role of mankind in the history of planet earth, and on the deep roots of the anthropogenic crises we are experiencing. During the first weekend we will consider the disturbing likelihood of civilisational collapse happening in our lifetimes - and discuss how to face this possibility in a deeply adaptive spirit.

Immersion events these days will be from 12.00 to 14.00, from 16.00 to 18.00 and from 20.00 to 22.00 (CET)
Whether we are in the midst of the shifting landscape, or watching with horror from a rapidly closing distance, how can we face reality, ourselves, one another and our communities? How can we set a course for a transformed future?
29 of June - 3 of July

Self-organised working groups will focus on different aspects of the predicament of "post-crisis" future. During the week, new and existing working groups can convene online to further their activities. You will be able to join in, or to start your own group if you wish.

Work groups we already know:
We Here
Metaversity Ecostream
Autonomous Servers Network Workshop
Grounding. Dis- & Re-connection with earth

These days there will be short common meetings at 10.00 and evening events from 20.00 to 22.00 (CET). Sessions of working groups and other events in small groups will be held throughout the day.
From concrete topics such as seed banking, through the wild undergrowth of community building, to the authentic sharing of personal experience and grief we seek to explore what lies beyond the end of this world, support one another in our actions and together forge a path into the future we want to tread.
4-5 of July (weekend)

After a week spent working together in a new widened network, our common discussion will unfold towards collective action and consciousness reflecting dreams of what a new, better world could look like.

In the final day the working groups are invited to share their harvests of their work with the common circle. Together we will have a round-table discussion on how to maintain and cultivate our communities in the dangerous times that lie ahead of us. Before we close the week there will be time to share and listen to final reflections from the various participants. The week will close with a common celebratory ceremony.

Immersion events these days will be from 12.00 to 14.00, from 16.00 to 18.00 and from 20.00 to 22.00 (CET)
We want to face and experience these times of crisis deeply and openly – to grieve and smile together, to let our voices ring and our bodies talk, to dream about new worlds we want to live in, to open new doors and continue working on what keeps us going.
