The Wide Awakes are an open-source network who believe in the evolution of society and the power to radically reimagine the future through creative collaboration.

We are a community of voices that welcome the ideas and membership of ALL as we grow this movement to create a new culture together in pursuit of liberation of mind, body, and spirit. 

Anyone can be a Wide Awake! Ask questions, open your eyes, and jump in.

OCTOBER 3RD

JOY_Rainbow

IS COMING

On October 3 of 1860 the Wide Awakes marched in the name of emancipation. They held massive torchlight parades around the country; in Chicago, Boston, Cleveland, and through lower Manhattan, all carrying lanterns and clad in oilcloth cloaks.

ARISE! Join us for a global participatory event as we revive and remix the Wide Awakes Grand Procession. There will be activations both online and across the globe where we will gather in joyful collaboration to pursue liberation of mind, body, and spirit. 

WE UNITE

in the name of Interdependence and collaboration

We are infinite, disruptive, enlightened, visionary, accountable. We want the radical complexity of diversity. We believe creative liberation is a game and all of us can play now and forever. We can emancipate ourselves without violence. We don’t need to be told what to believe or how to engage, we just need to be inspired to question what’s there. Broadening perspective yields a safer world.

We reclaim our inherent right for joy, for autonomy, and liberty. We reject extraction and finite games and embrace regeneration, abundance, and infinity in their stead. 

We stand, virtually and in reality, awakened internally, spiritually, psychologically, and eternally.
