Cultivate Ravesilience

A community page to share initiatives that contribute to cultivating Ravesilience

This silent 2020 summer, in the wake of widespread festival cancellations, reschedulings, and club closures, we coined the term, Ravesilience, a coupling of rave (wild, free, frenzied, fiery expression of pleasure) and resilience (the ability to resist or adapt to challenges).

In other words, Ravesilience is the adaptability, toughness, elasticity and endurance of the spirit of rave that bounces back no matter the obstacle. 

To maintain a connection to the community of audiophiles and bass junkies, to create virtual group therapy spaces while Covid-19 continues to prevent reunions on dancefloors, to nerd out over the ins and outs of festival production, to politicise the scene and spark debate (because commercial and independent event productions have been impacted very differently by the pandemic), to explore the tools and strategies to keep art, music, dance and cultural events alive in the middle of immense uncertainty. 

To achieve some of these things, we are producing podcasts, hosting virtual meet-ups, writing articles, sharing content, generally facilitating the exchange of ideas, vibes and values. 

What you can find on this page:

  • List of Initiatives
  • Ravesilience: Converging the Underground (August 2020 Online Stream)
  • Boom Toolkit for Covid-19
  • Música & Cultura na Quarentena playlists (Portuguese for 'Music and Culture during Quarantine') 



Here you can find crowdfunding campaigns, community support initiatives, grassroots projects to share resources and requests for any kind of help.

We are defining what is Ravesilience together, so we are open to hear and support all kinds of projects that contribute to keep the global independent revelling scene alive and thriving.
