NEST IS A BURNING COMMUNITY BUILT ON A FOUNDATION OF 11 CORE PRINCIPLES.
For millennia humanity has gazed into the night sky and wondered at what they observed. Even today we continue to speculate about all that is unknown in the universe.
Are we one of many worlds, each with their own unique physical laws? Will we someday travel hyperspace and explore the edges of black holes? Might we encounter inter-dimensional beings? Is there another version of you in a parallel universe? And would you be friends, if you were to meet?
Come play with the boundaries of interstellar existence. Invite your friends to other planets. Navigate a cruise across the planes of reality. Bring galactic secrets back through wormholes that connect past with future. Compose a sonata for string (theory). Become your own doppelganger from another cosmos. Teach people to dance in zero gravity. Fall through the holes in space and time and programme a simulation behind the stars.
The gate to Nest is a portal to the alternate realities of your dreams - start dreaming!
There are many ways to contribute, including taking a volunteer position, creating an art installation, running a workshop, sharing your music or knowledge, coordinating a performance, running a theme camp or participating in Build and Strike.
Lead roles are an incredible way to get to know the community, learn new skills, and really make an impact. We welcome and encourage year-round input from all new and existing community members - whether you have specific skills, or just time and enthusiasm to donate. Get in touch to find out more and stay tuned for regular updates on opportunities to contribute.
Nest is not a "festival", and we do not sell "tickets". Instead, we encourage people who wish to participate in Nest gatherings to purchase an annual membership. By doing so, you are agreeing to contribute to the ongoing creation of the Nest community and events.
