Loam is a movement of artists and activists who strive to support one another as we find our footing in the face of the climate crisis. Through our print publications, podcast, and emerging community center, we collaborate with a constellation of creatives to curate vibrant media and organize immersive experiences that inspire resilience and regeneration.
Our work is shaped by a commitment to these values:
Our hope is for Loam to reach folx who have felt marginalized by mainstream climate activism by honoring the creative energy within each of us. We value the power of the personal to inspire connection to systems change and cherish the opportunity to dig into our deeper “whys” through heart-powered stories and embodied experiences.
Our struggles are interconnected and our liberation is interdependent. Cultivating ecological regeneration is interwoven in the work of advocating for Black Lives Matter, LGBTQIA+ justice, indigenous sovereignty, and feminism.
Our practices and projects are imperfect. We bring generosity of spirit to our work and grace in our interactions with earth and each other. We strive to show up in service and when we make mistakes, to do what’s needed to mend & remake. We are committed to calling each other in, to listening, to learning, to evolving, and to extending our circle of care and connection.
Our constellation of artists & activists finds joy and juiciness in the creative process. We work together to reimagine narratives surrounding possibility and power, create fearlessly, and value art as a cherished catalyst for change.
We work to subvert binaries by making space for multiple voices. We honor our grief as deeply as our joy and believe that there is no single way to show up in service to our ecological and social communities.
We want to give to the earth what she gives to us and to gift to one other the kindness, reverence, respect, and love that sustains life. We are in dynamic relationship with our ecosystem and it’s our responsibility to co-tend and co-mend with care.
