Envision is a true embodiment of the community of the future – perpetuating a movement centered on a vision for a more conscious culture, one that celebrates both humanity and the natural elements of our planet. Standing on the verge of its seventh anniversary, Envision is excited for the founding of Casa Envision, a year round local Youth Center in the nearby town of Uvita. Looking to continue its sustainable-growth initiatives Envision expanded to welcome 4,700 attendees in 2016, a notable yet conscious increase of 500 participants from the previous year. For 2017, Envision promises to continue their advancement as a progressive force helping to define what it means to be a regenerative festival.

The grounds themselves are a masterpiece of stunning architecture with stages turning into visionary art installations, constructed from locally-sourced bamboo and materials, incorporating regenerative initiatives into as many aspects of the festival as possible.
Further expansions in 2016 focused on strengthening the festival’s connection to healing arts, with the development of the new yoga and movement village and the addition of Envision Educational Retreats – events that take place surrounding the festival and throughout the year.
