After the successful launch of our «Get Outside» events WE HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN and the frustrating truth is that even if noise restrictions were lifted «no more than 70db» (the volume of a normal conversation), the current system of snowballing costs associated with getting all the permits for our outside events would no longer make them feasible to run.
But we are not hurting anyone.
And we think that a safe and inclusive sober gathering, that brings together a village setting free from the false boundaries that often separate us is worth fighting for.
We believe that Edmonton needs a place to celebrate the bonding of family units, people of all ages, all backgrounds, preferences, and culture that wish to gather in green space with the simple intention to get up, get outside, shake off hardships and feel the joy of dance, fitness, tai chi, and so much more.
We believe that ready or not, its time for a movement that challenges our idea of what a «dance party» is and what the night life scene is missing… True connection.
So we are going to organize another Awake gathering outside and we are going to stand proud in the fact that we care about our community's right to gather.
Call it activism.
Call it a movement.
Call it whatever you like.
You have to experience it and for those that have: we are asking you to 1) share this event 2) personally invite your contacts to come join the movement 3) talk to people and other organizations that would like to be a part of what we are doing.
You are AWAKE.
Its about showing up authentically together to raise each other up and to empower us all to be the best version of ourselves so that we can show up in this world with energy and intention to be the change we wish to see.
