Mission image

Spring Up is a multimedia activist collective creating a space for conflict transformation through intentional myth making.  

We analyze interpersonal and structural violence & harness the power of storytelling to expand the imagination and inspire growth.

We believe that conflicts contain within them not only the seeds of their own resolution, but also carry great evolutionary potential for each and all of us.

Through mythological exploration of the scripts and narratives of the culture, Spring Up explores and expands the realm of possibility, and invites the imagined into the everyday.

We advocate subjective personal processing and coalitional intersectional movements of activism and healing to address violence at the personal, interpersonal, and community level.

We imagine a culture that does not revolve, but evolves.

 

Spring Up works with creatives, artists, activists, volunteers and educators on a project by project basis.
