Reflections from MG Artistic Director: Krista DeNio

From the bottom of my heart to the root structures that have supported our work, I thank you our community. You are amazing collaborators, integral partners and fantastic audience participants.

With all that we've been through over the last few years, we continue our devotion to community driven, community building, life affirming, creative experiences!

Coming together in reverence for life and creation makes it all meaningful and we are so grateful to all of you for joining us in these actions and art-making.

If you are able to give a year end gift, MovingGround is in a particularly precarious financial moment and we must build an operating fund for our work, in order to continue. Please consider giving a gift at this time, of anything from $5- $5,000...or less or more.

Your financial gift means we can continue to pay our one part time staff person and from here build our resources as we move forward.

Thank you for contributing to the life-giving work we create!

Krista and the MovingGround team!

2022 in Review: the NETWORK project

This was a big year for MovingGround and the NETWORK project!

In April core collaborators went to Costa Rica for a project research residency!

In July, the project had its first performance experience premiere at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program.

Here you can enjoy a music video created by collaborator Esther Young, with a song she wrote and performed in the July performance featuring footage from the experience, filmed by Loren Robertson Productions and edited by Chani Bockwinkel.

Soon MovingGround will debut the full video experience of this performance in an online event! Learn more about the project and it's past development below!


the NETWORK project bring humans, trees, land and more than humans together to feel our value for life and consider how we might survive and thrive. How can we recognize and build our resilience through sustainable living practices, communal engagement and empathy? Considering climate change, and other immediate crises, the project is inspired by systems of communication, resource-sharing and survival employed in tree communities, as a lens to consider human community building.
