Organizer

OUR WORLD FESTIVAL

We are an organization based in Greenville, South Carolina that brings people together through the rhythm and movement we share. Everyone is welcome to join us, however they feel they can express themselves in a positive, family-friendly manner. We host interactive rhythm events in parks, schools, community centers, businesses and anywhere people can use a little facilitation and a groove to help inspire them.

Our mission is to motivate people with the rhythms of life. We use traditional arts of music, dance, food, visual arts, yoga, wellness, and other interactive forms of expression to celebrate both the individual participant while working toward common group goals of ensemble performance or art presentation. We connect cultural artists to new communities and develop networks of vision-oriented organizations. Together we can make OUR WORLD a better place to Live, Work & Play!
