The programming includes talks with Tulum’s local environmentalists and national leaders, educational upcycling art workshops, interactive experiences to encourage attendees to adopt conscious and sustainable practices, virtual reality pieces on plastic pollution and recycling, and much more.
The Care With Me program acts year round and has hosted six beach cleanups, avoided single-use plastics and recycling 40% of the festival’s waste stream, hosted events to identify actions to be carried out around solid waste, and formed a National Alliance with 30 NGOs to ban single-use plastic in México.
IK Lab Tulum will be presenting the exhibition Alchemistry, featuring Los Angeles based creator of experimental sculptures and installations Kelly Akashi, multidisciplinary artist known for blending various materials Bianca Bondi, and NYC based artist bringing mythological components to the project Rochelle Goldberg. IK Lab Uh May will present the project Conjunctions featuring Brazilian large-scale installation artist Ernesto Neto, political Afro-Brazilian artist Paulo Nazareth, Russian sustainability artist Oskar Metsavaht, and IK Lab veteran Margo Trushina.
Other highlights include Aguae by Michael Benisty, who work has been displayed at Burning Man and beyond. This piece will tie into our focus on sustainability and environmental protection. We are also thrilled to announce Dream With Me presented by Constellation and featuring the revered Spanish artist Okudart. This will allow participants to reflect and share their dreams for a better world and will include a live concert, sound healing, and a collective dream ceremony.
