Who We Are and What Do We Do?

At Earth Moves, we tackle different issues such as social isolation, healthy eating, and ecological sustainability. We facilitate community engagement, linking the arts and horticulture. 

Creative activities such as dance and art enable people to focus on wellbeing, personal transformation, and immersion in nature. We do this through various workshops and events, where we seek to empower people to come together and make positive changes in the local community.

We are a grassroots community cooperative, adhering to cooperative ethics and principles. We advocate holistic, self-empowered, and creative ways of learning, focusing on the importance of community.

Dance is an excellent form of mindfulness that heightens awareness of the body, sensations, and emotions while connecting with the group consciousness.
