With energy flowing and spirits running high, The Liberators arrived at Flow Freedom Festival ready to gift the event with acts of presence, connection and freedom. Excited campers soon followed, eager to explore the land and activities available over the weekend as a means of exploring their own relationship to themselves. Once settled and grounded the community gathered to officially open the festival and set the space for what was going to be a transformational weekend on both an individual and collective level. Stu and Mandy, the founders and managing coordinators of The Flow Festival, openly welcomed everyone to the space, acknowledging them as not only paying ticket holders but brothers and sisters of an ever growing family and tribe. As equals who’s voice and presence was deeply seen, heard and felt. That sense of equality and acceptance flowed through into all of the workshops and activities available, ranging from yoga, to public talks, music, meditation and dance and provided the perfect platform for The Liberators to host their live interactive DJ set on Saturday night.
Bob Marley told us “every little thing gonna be alright” almost 40 years ago, and now we’re going to experience it again – global sing-a-long style. Marley’s hit song ‘Three Little Birds’ will take centre stage to create a sense of unity on public transport all around the globe on May 23 during the World’s Biggest Sing-a-Long. The Liberators International made headlines last year when they launched the world’s biggest eye contact experiment, with more than 100,000 participants from 161 cities taking part in the global event.

We’d never attempted something of this size before, the social experiment was to see if we could inspire hundreds of strangers to dance like nobody was watching in public. We prepared a giant moving sound system as seen in this picture and rolled into the centre of town with turbo charged butterflies in our stomachs.
It was Friday night, shops were open late, work had just finished, high heels and work shoes clicked across the pavement as thousands of people hustled through the centre of town. We’d arranged Continue reading
Have you ever wondered what might happen if you handed out lyrics to a song everyone loves, then invited the public to sing it together with you on a Monday morning train, bus or boat? Can you imagine if the same song was sung in over 100 cities at the same time and was then compiled into a global video that weaved everyones voices into singing the same song together as one?
Well on Monday, the 23rd of May 2016 the entire world is set to find out. The World’s Biggest Sing For Good has officially launched over the weekend and is a global flashmob event designed to create harmony on Earth by connecting people in cities all over with a spontaneous good morning sing-a-long.
The last time The Liberators International hosted a global event like this it attracted over 100,000 participants to share a minutes eye contact with strangers in public spaces all over the world. This time, Continue reading
A few months ago I got an unexpected email from a uni student Anna Bendz who asked if she could interview me for her media project. Little did I know she’d put so many of her own hours into creating a short documentary like this. Her team have crafted this beautiful piece of work to uncover a little more about my personal journey and how I ended up creating The Liberators International. I am honoured to have worked with such a professional group of people on my life journey. I deeply honour all the people who have helped me on this pathway through Liberation & Good Vibrations.
There is a peace that naturally forms between beings when we recognise ourselves in the other. War is not possible from this place. Just one minute can take you and I there. Just last month, over 100,000 people in 150 different cities tried it for themselves as a way to rebuild a sense of human connection in public. How? No words, no judgement, just one minute of eye contact.
This is by far the most inspiring video we’ve ever been involved in and it’s been made possible thanks to YOU and the 100,000 other participants! We look forward to featuring your story with the people at TEDx Perth tomorrow night.
Feel free to share this video with your friends, family and people to spread this beautiful message with the world.
We’re so freaking excited about what’s going to happen on Thursday the 15th of October we’ve created an official video trailer with never before seen footage to share with you!
This video experiment flips the perspective on homelessness and invites the public to empathise. We setup right in the middle of the CBD and found the public reaction eye opening. What would you do?
