The RIVER is a perfect metaphor of RENEWAL and INSPIRATION. 
Rivers serve as the arteries of the earth, offering cleansing and sustenance to numerous lifeforms. 
They form fertile beds for the germination and growth of communities and civilizations. 
Rivers are ancient as the hills and never run dry - unless subjected to severe environmental abuse.

We speak of “the river of the water of life” in our ecstatic visions of Heaven on Earth. 
The River, as a dynamo and a revitalizing playground of the spirit, aptly embodies 
the essence of the Rainbow Tribe Community Arts Project known as MAGICK RIVER.
In directly experienceable terms, the living energy of MAGICK RIVER 
expresses itself in the perpetual dance of virginal WATER: 
the symbol of life, birth, joy, transformation, rebirth and healing.

The word “magick” relates to the power of the IMAGINATION - expressed 
through a harmonious marriage of Intellect and Intuition. Magick denotes the practical fusion of 
Art, Science, and Spiritual Wisdom, evoking the alchemist’s symbolic quest: 
to turn lead into gold, transmute the base into the noble. 
MAGICK is a fun word that suggests serendipity, spontaneity, creativity 
and productivity beyond all expectations.

MAGICK RIVER is a rainbow alliance of individuals with diverse talents, promoting 
ecospiritual activities and community arts projects that involve an Orang Asli (aboriginal) tribe 
of Peninsular Malaysia, the Temuan - who for countless generations have guarded the 
rainforests and sacred sites of Pertak, Ulu Selangor, their ancestral home.


FREE OUR RIVERS!
 

A 110-metre (400 ft) reservoir dam has been built across the beautiful Selangor River,
flooding 600 hectares (1,500 acres) of rainforest, disrupting the Temuan's 
traditional way of life, desecrating their sacred sites, and jeopardizing the historic town of Kuala Kubu Bharu. 

Upstream of the dam, the Selangor River and its tributaries
are still as magnificent and wild as they have been for the last 500 million years.
Where the rivers are free to flow, the landscape still looks like Tolkien's Rivendell. 
Where the waters have been impounded, it looks like a suburb of Saruman's Isengard.
Magick River is part of a consciousness-raising movement to outlaw ecologically disastrous 
and unnecessary dam projects, and thus keep our rivers forever free.

Let's bid a swift end to the evil age of ecocidal anthropocentrism
and patriarchal monotheism!

“art as awakened warriorship... art as a dynamic agent of planetary
  transformation... art as a foundation for global peace...”   - José Argüelles

 "Art is a means of connecting two worlds, the visible and the invisible,
the physical and the spiritual. The area of our consciousness where
culture has its roots lies in the uncontrolled mind of every individual:
in the moment when it is given space to make a creative leap.
Artists, scientists and spiritual masters alike have great respect
for that particular faculty of our human potential. It is in the
realisation of each individual’s intuitive creativity that
everybody would agree with the statement, everyone is an artist."
- Louwrien Wijers

“Culture is shared meaning in which everybody participates.” - David Böhm

  “Our true capital is our creativity.”   -  Joseph Beuys

 “He then showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal,
flowing forth from the throne of God and of the Lamb,
and running through the middle of the street,
and on this side and that side of the river,  the tree of life, bearing 12 kinds of fruit,
yielding its fruit every month.
And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.”

Revelation 22:1-2

"It's far too late for anything but magick,
as the future is clearly up for grabs."
