After the theft and destruction of our beautifully crafted stage, we find ourselves at a moment of contemplation within the VVAGON project.
We called our stage the VVAGON, but the two aren't one and the same. We may have lost the stage but we have lost none of our drive to fight for the values Vivobarefoot is founded upon and to find new ways to give back. The VVAGON was always a vessel for values and experiences first and foremost, rather than a thing of value itself.
We are completing the event season with as few cancellations as possible. After the end of the season in September, we will return to the drawing board and use all of our experience from our time with the VVAGON to create a stage for 2020 which is even more sustainably made and even more impactful. As it stands, we will still be attending the National Trust South West Outdoor Festival in Cornwall on the 27th to the 29th of September. It will be the last event of the year for us.
VIVOBAREFOOT PRESENTS THE VVAGON
The Vvagon is our way of sharing the VIVOBAREFOOT life with you. We’re taking this beautiful wooden trailer on a voyage of discovery all over the UK. We believe there’s a better way of living, a better way of doing business, and we’re off to find it.
As a company, we like to give back, so we’ll be doing a little bit of good everywhere we go. From offsetting our carbon emissions by planting trees in the cities we visit, to beach cleans & ‘plogs’, and teaming up with local charities.
While we travel the UK, we’ll be running workshops, talks and Q&A sessions with likeminded people in incredible locations.
We’re looking forward to making new friends as we all work together to become happier, healthier versions of ourselves on a happier, healthier planet.
We created the Vvagon in collaboration with Studio Hardie (of George Clark’s Amazing Spaces) using sustainable natural materials and biophilic principles. It’s a beautiful solar-powered stage for all things VIVO.
IT’S AN ADVENTURE, COME JOIN US.
