Clearly we live in a period of massive change. Millions of people around the world aspire to a new way of working and living. New values and aspirations are emerging and as a result the existing social structures, inherited from the industrial revolution, don’t seem to fit anymore.
Combining individual and social transformation is key to a successful renewal of our society. It is an illusion to think that the world can change while we, as individuals, remain in our comfort zone and refuse to boldly engage in our own personal transformation.
LIFT-UP is an artistic, educational and social project that aims to lift-up, encourage and inspire the creative forces of transformation so that we can all accelerate the renewal of our lives and of our society. Our activities are all forged with a seamless blend of filmmaking, workshops, talks and active events. We wish to promote a positive view of our collective future and we wish to share practical ways in which we can all contribute to a deep renewal of ourselves and of our world. In short, at LIFT-Up our work can be defined as Creativity & Transformation Activism.
To LIFT-UP means to move to a higher level of consciousness as we transform our personal lives and society.
The name LIFT-UP is actually an acronym of 7 words which together make-up our set of Values : LOVE – IMAGINATION- FREEDOM – TRANSFORMATION – stillness – UNITY- PEACE.
Taking this concept one step further, these 7 values can be formulated as a list of 7 actions to be taken by anyone who wants to engage in a successful transformation process:
- Rekindle your LOVE of Life
- Reignite your IMAGINATION
- Reconquer your FREEDOM
- Reengage in your TRANSFORMATION
- Rediscover the (stillness)
- Recompose your UNITY
- Reconnect with your inner PEACE
