Let's get our tribe back home safely and quickly

Tribal Gathering needs your help, and we need it now. 

To all our friends, family and extended networks of concerned parties across the world - We need your urgent support. 

We have a very short window of opportunity to clear our Tribal Family out of Panama before the international travel ban comes into effect on the 22nd March. 

Embassies and consulates have been incredibly slow to help, and in most cases are only providing basic transport from our festival site to Panama City. They are not helping with the costs of or facilitating the acquisition of flights, food, hotels, and other vital expenses that will be incurred as we try to get back home safely. 

We have approximately 250 people still on our festival site, who all have to move in the next 24 hours to book flights, obtain VISA's and make travel arrangements in an extremely volatile global situation where day after day, more and more countries are closing their borders. Without financial support to book last-minute international flights, obtain food, and book hotels, GeoParadise cannot help fund the repercussions of the Global Covid-19 pandemic. 

Many of our volunteers have very limited funds and options and run the risk of getting stranded indefinitely in Panama if they cannot book safe passage right away. 

We need your help, money, social media shares, and above all, extra pressure on the authorities to provide the help we need. 

We have been blessed with generous financial support from the family of the core organisation, but there are limits to what is possible, and it's time for the outside world to step up. 

We are all one tribe after all.

About Us:

GeoParadise  works with native communities to preserve their cultural identity, creating a cooperative network for resource sharing, and facilitating the connection between communities in need and those with the resources and skills to help.

The main fundraising effort comes in the form of Tribal Gathering festival:

Unity Through Diversity
Once a year 60 tribes from 30 countries come together to share their knowledge with each other, artists, teachers and attendees from all over the world. Tribal Gathering is so much more than a music festival. It’s 18 days on a Caribbean beach, around 200 workshops and presentations, hundreds of musicians from around the world, a learning journey from the ancient to the modern and one of the world's most important indigenous cultural celebrations.

The first half is dedicated to the tribes with several zones offering workshops, ceremonies, and indigenous music. There are also non-indigenous presentations on topics like art and music, sustainable development and agriculture, health and nutrition, socioeconomic issues and more. Slowly the pace picks up and we seemingly travel through time to the finale of five days of electronic music and what might be described as our modern rituals of dance, art, and creativity.
