Oika

Oika is a science-based, art-driven cultural movement to re-establish the experience of nature and relational intelligence into the human condition.

Oika Arts is a grant-funded, traveling education program to infuse ecological intelligence back into culture.

Oika Into the Artmosphere is a call to art to change the climate of our minds.

We aim to reach artists where they are, while art is happening. So all Oika Artsprojects are designed to effortlessly integrate with any ongoing arts program. We do this by taking a dual approach:

  1. Formal Oika Arts programs are partnerships with community arts organizations to create jointly-funded and delivered programs. These may include artist residencies, subsidized Oika Arts courses for local communities, place-based installations, or seasonal  and regional festival events.  Example..
  2. Interspersed among formal partnership programs are impromptu Oika Arts “interventions.” These short-notice, opportunistic events bring a dynamic, nature practice into the habits and habitats of local artists. We deliver a menu of services that include; salon-style, talks and conversations, weekend workshops and short courses in ecological intelligence.  Example...

Our platform for 2019/20 is a sailboat, cruising ports on the East Coast of the US. This allows us to deliver programs on short-notice within a moving geographical radius.
