On behalf of Samavesha, 350+ artists, 100+ volunteers, and 8000+ festival goers we invite you to join Art in Nature by becoming a Donor, a Sponsor, a Community Partner or a Volunteer.

Your tax-deductable contribution is indispensable to supports Art in Nature’s mission to:

  • make world-class arts and nature accessible to all
  • awake and express personal creativity
  • foster collaborative synergy
  • encourage diverse and resilient communities
  • connect people with nature and inspire environmental awareness

Art in Nature is a full day interdisciplinary, interactive, site-specific, multi-sensory, intercultural, and intergenerational immersion into art, nature, and the nature of art. It takes place annually along the mile-long Stream Trail of Oaklandʼs Redwood Regional Park, California. The event is FREE, unplugged (acoustic) and off the grid (no electricity or cell phone coverage). Art in Nature would not exist without the generous support of individual donors.

The intent is to utilize the power of nature and art to bring people closer together, to draw out our innate creativity, to provide a model for collaborative, innovative action, and to inspire future generations. We are optimistic that social, economic, and environmental challenges are surmountable through creative collective action. By providing a free festival, financial barriers are removed. Backers are a vital part of the success of this process.
