Fire Springs' approach to our work is ecobardic.    

Fire Springs members aim to -  

Fire the imagination of adults and children    

Inspire transformation in individuals and groups    

Reach different audiences with new and traditional tales    

Empower others to tell their own stories    

Our artistic roots, as a group, are in the bardic arts - performance storytelling, poetry and song. Individually, our backgrounds are in writing, musicianship and painting, and in education, publishing, the natural sciences, archaeology and art history.

 

 

Our performances bring certain artistic qualities found in ancient and modern bardic practice together with the recognition of the centrality, in our time, of the relationship between humankind and the global ecosystem.

 

 

We published An Ecobardic Manifesto in 2008 - a vision for the arts in a time of environmental crisis. A well as being a mission statement for ourselves, this draws attention to the considerable 'ecobardic' work that diverse artists have already accomplished and raises a cry for more work of this kind.
