Thank You For Shankra Festival 2016!

November 3, 2016

Dear Shankra Family,

our ambition and dream was, is and will always be to create a space and place for you to dance in harmony, share, care and celebrate life in oneness.
We are grateful to the people that came from 55 countries who reunited in our valley over 5 days of festival, which made our 11 months of intense work a blessing.
We want to thank every single person who dedicated his work in this creative process, to the inhabitants and municipality of Lostallo and especially you, with your smiles and dancing feet, who made our vision become reality.
Our deepest condolences goes to the family and friends of the soul who sadly left us during the festival; no one is alone till there is a spark of love in the world, speak your heart out.

Learning is an infinite process, your suggestions and critics are most welcome to: feedback@shankrafestival.ch

Be the Change Foundation

Thanks to your support and participation at our festival, we are being able to establish a solid and sustainable process to fund projects who will lead the world, tomorrow, to a better place.
As a starting point, we are adopting and taking charge of study expenses, from primary school to college, of 5 children who lost their parents during war time in Sri Lanka. Their school journey begins today, bless them.
Our aim is to be able to take care of 50 children before the end of 2020. A dedicated website of our Foundation will be launched in the next weeks, meanwhile, if you have suggestions, ideas or you wish to be involved in the mission, please write to bethechange@shankrafestival.ch

Shankra Festival 2017’s edition

In the last month we received many messages asking us when our next edition will be, so we are happy to announce it will be from the 12th of July 2017 to the 16th July 2017.

The presale are running now for a early bird price of 90 CHF (please note that this year's tickets are limited) and part of the program will be published on the 15th of November.

To Artists, Musicians, Performers and Social Entrepreneurs

Our purpose is to create a meaningful space for artists, musicians, performers and social entrepreneurs who want to express their soul message.
For this reason, we opened an application form where you can send us a brief description of you, your art form and why you wish to perform at our event.

Note Article Picture: the message on the piece of paper was given by a participant on our last edition, to our last surprise act: Hypnoise.

Your Life is Your Message
