Bodykind is about honouring life in its various forms, rather than comparing
oneself or anyone else to an external concept of beauty.
The festival included inspiring speakers, workshops, art, film, dance, theatre, song, and more…
It was a grassroots, non-profit, whole-community event, genuinely inclusive, encouraging everyone to look at ways of feeling more comfortable in their own skin. Then and now, there's something here for everyone, we look at size, shape, age, colour, gender, sexuality and disability.
Bodykind Festival's core principles are:
Illuminating and challenging non-acceptance
Meeting fear and shame with sensitivity and kindness
We've been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and generosity this initiative has been met by; come and join the revolution.
