Mahalo to everyone who joined us for the opening weekend of ‘LESS IS MORE: Exploring Mindfulness and Conscious Consumption,’ a collaborative experience that we've curated at First Amendment Gallery in San Francisco! The exhibition is on view until September 1, but if you aren't able to see it in person you can view the full catalogue of artworks here

‘LESS IS MORE’ opens dialogue surrounding hyper-consumption as a dominant driver of environmental degradation and climate change. This experiential collection navigates between the macro and micro, highlighting the myriad effects that individualistic decisions have on our our planet’s fragile natural resources and ecosystems. Temple Children is an experimental arts and sustainability platform uniting a diverse global community of creatives to generate collaboration for positive change. In search of a collective consciousness, this dedicated group challenges us to look inward and recognize the interconnectedness between human beings and our environments.
