While we grieve the loss of our community in paradise, we have not given up. We have been busy working on the Hedonisia rebirth.
Starting from December 2021, we plan to begin with with a Eco-Friendly Tiny Home. They are becoming more popular as a simple affordable way to live and due to COVID 19, they are safer too.
To help us raise funds, we are offering a parcel of partially developed land for sale. This would allow us to concentrate our funds and resources on our original lava-covered land.
Creative Social Activism and Environmentalism
Both before and after the eruption, Hedonisia managed a portfolio of social entrepreneur projects with a focus on gender equality, reproductive rights, and activist entrepreneurship. All our projects including the art murals above, began at the Pre-Volcano Hedonisia Hawaii Eco-Feminist Community with the help of interns and volunteers from around the world.
We offer educational and sustainable tools for activist entrepreneurs, ecofeminists and other creative people who wish to make a living by making a difference.
Our projects are based on social entrepreneur principles we practiced at Hedonisia Hawaii. Living in paradise allowed us to practice 'pleasurable activism'. We worked hard to play a role in improving the world but also to have fun doing so.
Sadly Hedonisia Hawaii was destroyed in the Kilauea volcano eruption of 2018. The picture above is the Hedonisia Community barn as it was just before the eruption.
It was a foundation of our community to show how social entrepreneurship can play a role in addressing various problems both in society and the environment. We continue to do this work post-volcano with the Hedo Feminista Web Portfolio.
Hedo Feminista: Intersecting Identity Play Communication Workshops
One of the most exciting projects we have developed in our post-volcano community is the Intersecting Identity Play Communication Workshops.
Designed for individuals, small groups, companies or organizations, it teaches simple tools for communication that allow people of different races, cultures, genders, identities and ages to communicate with the maximum of free speech combined with personal politeness for individual sensitivities.
Our zoom communication workshop offers an alternative way of reaching out to each other that is sorely needed in these divided times when everyone is so sensitive about being offended.
Though the workshops are held in Portland, we will always be hosting them via Zoom. That way, you can be part of these fun and entertaining workshops no matter where you live in the world. We invite you to join us.
