Coming to Your Neck of the Woods

We don’t want to keep the good we grow to ourselves. We want to make it available to as wide an audience as possible. So we need your help! We need opportunities to do what we do as many places as possible. Bring us to your school, civic org or faith community.

Or join us at one of our public events.

Either way, you’ll be glad you did.

Wild Goose Festival @ Hot Springs Resort & Spa
Aug 8 – Aug 11 all-day

 

The Wild Goose is a festival of family and fun at the intersection of faith, justice, music and the arts.

What the Wild Goose community believes is best discovered through shared experience. There is no litmus test beyond an open heart. There is no creed required beyond a willingness to meet respectfully across lines of difference, to share wisdom and listen to each other’s stories, and become more than the sum of our parts. We’re just getting started. The best way to discover what we’re about is to come to the festival. But if you’d like to read more about our aspirations, check out what some friends of ours in the UK have been doing for a few decades at Greenbelt; they inspire us and their commitments resonate with our own.

Ultimately, Wild Goose provides space for courageous, imaginative, and participative social justice work, creative expression, spiritual practice, and astonishing music.

We are called to embody a different kind of religious expression than has often dominated our institutions and culture.  We believe that the best criticism of the bad is the practice of the better; so we refuse to merely denounce the shadow of the tradition and abandon it. Instead, we humbly seek to both tear down and build up, walking a path that embodies love of God, neighbor, and self.

We dream of a movement where everyone is welcome to participate. We are intentionally building a space in which we invite everyone to value, respect, and fully affirm people of any ethnicity, age, gender, gender expression, sexual identity, education, bodily condition, religious affiliation, or economic background, particularly the marginalized. We are committed to fair trade, gift exchange, ecological sanity, and economic inclusion. We strive for high standards of mutual respect, non-hierarchical leadership, and participative planning.

We invite you to join us.  There is age-appropriate programming for adults, youth and children, great music and food, laughter and dance–and plenty of FUN FOR ALL!

Musicians include:

Thursday

WGF13-David-Wimbish-and-the-Collection Adam Crossley Speech from Arrested Development

Friday
