Co-creation and Community

For each event we work together with the local artists and communities.

Always Burning celebrates creativity. It is a place of creation and innovation; a birthing ground for breaching artistic boundaries, experimenting, and developing new experiences together. We perceive each event as a new work of art that we design with great passion. We love to add colour and flavour, to shimmer, to create sweet memories, to promote the art and craft of storytelling, and to honor and celebrate the diversity and commonality of human experience.  We believe we all benefit from sharing stories and creating moments together.

Within this framework new talents, creations, and connections are born. We are always on the lookout for progressive storytellers or partners. The possibility to dream and create an extensive network allows us to step forward confidently in creating more magical events.
