Our Five Values
Our values are Growth, Exploration, Balance, Connection and Celebration. We believe in building a sustainable future which is inclusive and diverse. As a crew we aim to have a positive impact on not only your personal experience as a festival participant but also on the broader culture beyond that. Environmental awareness is at the heart of our festival. We want to explore new ideas and think about where we might be able to move to as humans, together. Highlighting the very best of the human experience, we believe that everyone's voice is important and brings something unique to this reality that we shape together.
The name 'Anthropos'
Anthropos means human in both ancient and modern Greek. Join us in a celebration of all of humanity throughout all time: past, present and future. We will explore the unique nature of our consciousness - our drive to create beauty through the arts and music, combined with our innate ability to gain wisdom through introspection. Together let us re-remember how to be human!
About the Logo (Hand Stencil)
The festivals logo is based on pre-historic hand stencils. Hand stencils and prints are amongst the oldest types of human art and can be found all over the world. They are a universally human symbol. See this page for more info.
Why 12019 HE (HUMAN ERA)?
We're currently in the year 12019 HE, going by the Holocene Calendar.
The Holocene Calender is a year numbering system that places its first year near the beginning of the Holocene geological epoch and the Neolithic Revolution (which adds 10,000 years to the currently dominant Gregorian calendar). It's a more inclusive system that makes our past more impressive and incorporates all humans from all cultures into our calendar.
For more context on the Holocene calendar, check out this video by the Kurzgesagt − In a Nutshell youtube channel
