The Synergy Project
Friday, 11th November 2005
SEOne Club London Bridge, Weston Street, SE1 London UK
a big experiment – a big change over – a big learning curve
and with all of that: a wonderful gathering once again!
A lot of things happened for the very first time – and this is always an exciting step to take.
For the first time ever we hosted a panel discussion in the main room – representing speakers like Greg Sams, Yap, David Rovics and Annie Machon – presented by our very own Paradox.
Also the fact that the main room was not the usual stomping trance room that we have accustomed to – a daring move – but we feel it certainly made up for an interesting change – taken care of by IDSpiral who also provided a deep healing chill-out space.
The dance room was then moved to the other side of the venue, the so-called blue room, hosted by Inside-Us-All, legendary for their Trance Room at the November 2004 event. They once again outdid themselves with their elaborate VJ production and general room decoration. Very clever

The live music room was once again be looked after by the Small World Stage, providing a night of bands and DJs, fermented in the global melting pot and distilled into festival spirit.
The Gallery, hosted by no one else but Art Nation renowned for their excellent displays and installations, created the warmth and creativity that we are used to by now – involving artists from all walks of life, the wishing tree, a photo exhibition and a giant squid…
We also continued to further the non smoking vision – by widening the areas of non smoking – and yes, it worked a treat. With the help of an army of stewards who kept reminding everyone – thanks for all of your cooperation.
