See the workshop lineup for 2023
We would like to encourage earth-based sustainability, activism and practical ‘how-to’ workshops, as well as workshops for Kids and Youth at the 2023 festival.
By default, workshop facilitators receive a free entry, free vehicle pass and a meal on the day of their workshop. Once your application is accepted, you will be contacted by our workshops team to discuss further details and confirm your place at Earth Beat. There will also be options to purchase additional tickets at a reduced cost.
Please take the time to read and complete the application form below.
Earth Beat is not like any other festival. It is vital for those who apply to be familiar with our kaupapa (purpose), the reason ‘why’ our festival exists. You can read more about Earth Beat and our kaupapa here.
The team at Earth Beat will be evaluating applications and creating the 2023 workshop programme based on the principles below. The principles are guidelines and should not be considered as necessary criteria for your application.
Align with the kaupapa of Earth Beat and our workshop content areas: Mātauranga / Indigenous Wisdom, Parenting, Activism and World Affairs, Movement, Kaipara moana, Science / Technology, Permaculture / Sustainability, Money / Finance, Wellbeing, Meditation, Yoga, Dance, Kids, Youth
Foster connection to nature and our mother earth (Paptūānuku), especially through Aotearoa New Zealand based Māori/indigenous practices, wisdom and knowledge.
Curate and facilitate connection intentionally to help nurture a unified field.
Add value to Ātiu Creek (physically and spiritually).
Consider all generations and abilities intentionally (including youth/kids/seniors, multigenerational participation, limited mobility, etc). Kids’ workshops will be referred to our children’s workshop organisers.
To amplify the experience at Earth Beat and further ‘the why’ (our longer kaupapa) and the effect we can have together, we are looking to offer immersive learning experiences that run over two or more days, similar to a weekend workshop outside a festival. We are looking for proposals for these longer immersive workshops where participants pay for the regular festival ticket price with an additional add-on price. Note that shared marketing is essential for these workshops.
Successful applicants will be fully supported and compensated in accordance with their experience and time.
Please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org instead of filling out the form below.
