Welcome to the redesigned Luminopolis newsletter… if you’d like some frivolous big-thinking to remind you why we exist, then read our Blog Piece. If you just want the hard facts, then skip to Party News. Don’t forget to read our Cheap Ticket offer!
Well it certainly has been a momentous few weeks… we held the first party under our new name Luminopolis (previously we were called The Synergy Project), and the global financial system has gone into a near melt-down. We don’t know for certain that there’s a connection, but who knows… the Butterfly Effect suggests that small changes in seemingly unrelated events can have profound effects on each other.
You see Luminopolis is more than just a great party… it is an indoor multi-media festival aiming to inspire positive change through celebration. Our unique blend of cutting-edge music, visual arts, performances, debates, and playful interactivity uses clubbing as an educational tool. Working in collaboration with NGOs and social enterprises we help to raise awareness of the major social and environmental issues affecting our world.
Our goal is to promote a globally sustainable way of life… and for sure the world’s financial systems are currently highly unsustainable. As is now clear, the remedy will require every government to co-ordinate extra-ordinary measures on an unprecedented scale… and for ideological dogma to give way to pragmatic big-thinking.
And that’s great news because tackling the very much bigger problem of climate change is going to require exactly these international co-operative skills, agreements, structures, and thinking.
So maybe (just maybe) the tiny turbulence from all our collective celebratory energy and intent while at Luminopolis has had, through the Butterfly Effect, a profound impact on the world markets, and hence made it easier for us to tackle climate change… Maybe we really have danced our way to a brighter future!… We certainly like to think so, even if it turns out to be only poetically true 🙂
Enjoy your day…
The Luminopolis Team
