BAREFOOT WORKSHOPS is a media based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization where adults and youth are taught video, photography, music, and art as a way to document their surroundings, make change in the world, and most importantly, make change within themselves. With Barefoot, growing and learning as an artist means growing and learning as an individual. They empower youth through media, music and the arts, bridge communities together to address global issues, inspire individuals and communities to transform themselves from within, and innovate new uses of media to meet development goals internationally.

GREEN DOME PROJECTS

Green Dome Projects is a traveling pavilion showcasing youth best practices and collaborative projects promoting sustainability. The purpose of the Green Dome Project is to provide a 21st Century “space” where youth can gather together and be exposed to “Restoration Era” job opportunities, support links and youth-run exhibits. The Green Dome Project made its extremely successful debut at the EDC-sponsored Youth Employment Summit in Veracruz, Mexico in October 2004. Connecting youth from different cultures connect with each other and the Earth.

COMPASSION RISING

The story of the Dalai Lama and Thomas Merton and the inter-connectedness between all religions.

Either the world as a whole will consciously move toward the positive and towards peace, or devolve unconsciously toward the negative and destructive. COMPASSION RISING was undertaken 13 years ago with the expressed intention of creating a new, more powerfully vibrating music derived and inspired from the ancient chant traditions of East and West, forged in the womb of the largest cave in the world, and specifically designed to bring forth feelings of compassion and peace so as to bring people together in harmony and love.
