Our Purpose - RISE Festival

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”

We work to make the world a better place through the transformative power of art. We believe art can lift us and remind us of the beauty of our shared humanity. That’s what the RISE Sky Lantern Ceremony is about.

We bring people together for a collective art project, and create a space where everyone can experience a moment of serenity, unity, and grace.

This celestial show is the centerpiece of RISE, but it’s only one part of the experience. Taken as a whole, RISE delivers healing, harmony, and hope to our guests and the broader community.

This is our wish, our prayer, and why we do what we do.
