In response to the many crises we are facing today as a result of the materialist, economy-driven emphasis of mainstream western civilisation, 3rd Space is a forum for ‘unlearning’, for re-kindling our imaginations. It’s a space to explore alternative perspectives from both western and non-western cultures around the world. We host inter-civilisational gatherings and dialogues, and offer ‘immersive journeys’ – an opportunity to spend time interning in ‘live’ projects in India, discovering another civilisation from the inside.
Climate change, global communication, feminism and racial inequalities are now alerting us to different ways of knowing, living and being that are more integrated, less hierarchical, and more wholistic. At 3rd Space we seek out and highlight these alternatives from around the world. Through the 3rd Spaces we feature – both in-depth critiques and innovative counter-narratives – we seek to contribute to re-defining modernity.
The purpose of these forums is an expansion of consciousness – an awakening to the universal nature of existence at the level of being – as the foundation for effecting practicable change. In this way, 3rd Space aims to generate and support events, projects and policies that address from a wholistic perspective, the issues that confront us today.
