To all Solstice celebrators:

We're writing to you today with some last minute news regarding the 2017 Solstice celebration, which happens next week, June 20-21.

We are expanding on the 24-hour show from last year, which featured contributions from over 60 artists, scientist, musicians and more.
One of the main new elements this year is footage from the Smithsonian Institute about kayaks and canoes. These crafts were the first inventions that offered humanity a shot at expanding their horizon and traveling beyond their place of birth, opening up connections to a new world. We like to keep expanding on these inventions, and with each recurring annual Solstice celebration, we hope to be increasing the level of worldwide connectivity to share people's creativity, culture and innovative ideas. 

This year we are also celebrating on an online platform, through Google Hangouts, which is easily accessible through any mobile phone, with live hosting from a fabulous team at the Kapsakki Theater in Helsinki, Finland, where it all gets mixed and monitored.

We urge you to please take a moment to tune in to our website or the hangouts and check out the video, as well as some live contributions from New York, L.A., Beijing, Finland and more. If you would like to actively contribute with music, poetry or other creative work from a remote location, please let us know where you will be next week on June 20-21, and if a ndwhat time you would be interested to 'beam in' so we can have you on the broadcast schedule. Otherwise, we hope you will just take a moment to enjoy the show!

Looking forward to hearing back from you and to connect again.
