EGA Seedlings – Community Video Project
We invite the Australian ethnobotanical and psychedelic community to contribute original video content to our livestream on Sunday 5th July (more details on the livestream soon).
During this time of reflection and uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to reach out and share our knowledge and experiences with the community. So, we’re inviting people to review the EGA statement of purpose and mission and respond with a pre-recorded video that is aligned with our charity’s cause in any way. Let’s collaborate to showcase and celebrate Australian knowledge and culture!
Videos can range in duration from 28 seconds to six minutes, 28 seconds, and can be talking heads, instructional, points of view, creative, or anything your imagination can come up with.
Please keep it legal, be respectful of yourself and others, and share how you plant ethnobotanical seeds for earth, body, and mind.
Due date: 5pm Thursday July 3rd
