The Algonquin Collective is an organization that travels through out the US empowering our younger generation’s mind though music and art.

The Algonquin Collective is based off of The Group of Seven (artists Franklin Carmichael, Lawren Harris, A.Y. Jackson, Frank Johnston, Arthur Lismer, J.E.H. MacDonald and Frederick Varley), sometimes known as the Algonquin School. This was a group of Canadian landscape painters from 1920 to 1933 and consisted of seven members. Believing that a distinct Canadian art could be developed through direct contact with nature, the Group of Seven is best known for its paintings that were inspired by the Canadian landscape. Once the war was over, the informal group reconvened and began to travel throughout Ontario. They sketched landscapes and developed different techniques to better their art. This initiated the first major Canadian national art movement.
These group of men banded together to form a group to promote change during a time when which art was heavily criticized. The Algonquin Collective follows a similar model in which we will host events at festivals and cities around the US to teach our generation and younger generations the importance of
We intend on doing this by holding workshops, exercises, and stand-a-lone events teaching permaculture, self motivation, goal setting, personal wellness and exercise while infusing sound healing and yoga, Embodiment, spoken word exercises, fire spinning and Ambient dancing. It also provides a place where people can be safe.
So join the movement as we travel around the US teaching the 7 core values to create and empower a stronger generation.
