A temporary village will be constructed, to house the carnival crew and support experiments with radical simplicity, resourcefulness, and ecologically responsible models for living. What might this look like?
We know that we need, as a people, to move toward more sustainable ways of living; ways that don’t entail such horrible human and environmental exploitation. In many ways, such a move would be more of a return to the practices of our ancestors: graceful ways of living peaceably with the planet. Many of these ways would now be called primitive. So, as an experiment and a holy game, the carnival will be living as much as possible the way we understand that traveling band societies lived. What will it look like? What problems will arise when we try to apply this primitive mode of living in a modern urban context? We think the results will be funny, educational, good for conversation, and fun for host neighborhoods to watch.
