The WAW Gathering is an anti-festival, a celebration and a conversation curated by the team from Attica in Melbourne to inspire, energise and help people in the food community and beyond.

WAW (pronounced war) stands for “what a wonderful world” and the events are intended as a celebration of being alive, a reminder of the value of life, of the power of staying open, and the courage it takes to not only stand by your own convictions but remain open to those of others.

Inspired as much by the DIY-ethic of punk as it is the help-your-neighbours approach of grassroots living, it’s as much about working together to build the barn as it is crashing the barriers.

It’s our hope that the WAW Gathering will be a reminder that kindness, love and integrity will always win the battle against negativity, and of what we can accomplish in this life when we work together to make it happen.
