vision statement

We believe that every human/creature in the universe possesses a unique collection of skills, stories, experiences and artistic expressions that inspire and teach others when shared. Cross Pollination tour aims to make space for this kind of sharing.

Our intention is not to bring something to our destinations that they presumably lack. Instead, we seek to honor and support the people and spaces we visit by tailoring each stop to the desires of the individuals and communities organizing with us. (What is each community excited to share? What do participants want to hear, see or know more about?) We envision these collaboratory events taking the form of any (combination) of the following: variety shows, discussion circles, celebrations/rituals, dance parties, workshops, art salons, performances, skillshares, etc. The possibilities are open and infinite.

We’re open to traveling wherever we are wanted. We’re especially interested in places that aren’t typically on the tour circuit: intentional communities, land projects, small towns and rural areas. We seek a variety of venues: houses, community centers, info shops, book stores, senior centers, parks, libraries, farms. We’ll also be making spontaneous stops at rest areas and other public outdoor spaces along the way.

We want to connect with you. We want to experience your art and wisdoms and share ours with you. We want to sow your ideas in our work and leave ours to bloom with you.

*we are committed to making each event as accessible for as many people as possible (including but not limited to: wheelchair-accessible spaces and providing ASL [and other] interpretation)
