We are a group of creative people in Vermont's Champlain Valley. We like art. We like making stuff. We want a better world for our kids. Put all that together, and you get Hearthunder Art Collective. The basic idea is to use our creativity and passion to support environmental and social activism groups in their efforts by plugging in our special brand of awesome to their events. We do parades as public outreach and fundraising opportunities (and because it is fun to be a rock star once in a while!) Everybody wants a better world. Not everybody wants to get out and march on city hall. It feels confrontational. It can be embarrassing. It can be overwhelming and awkward and might even get you arrested. But what if instead of a march with angry chants, it was a rolling dance party? What if there were jugglers and stilt walkers; crazy parade floats and a marching band playing reggae? Sounds like a lot more fun, no? That is the Hearthunder vision. We can change the world, with love and passion and relentless positivity. With Heart and Thunder.
