Loam is a movement of compassionate and creative activists who strive to support one another as we find our footing in the heart of the climate crisis. Our community is passionate about seeding regeneration, resilience, and joy through embodied experiences that inspire the cultivation of sustainable activist practices, foster intersectionality across movements, and help each one of us to heal our connection to our earth.
From publishing a vibrant print magazine that shares stories from diverse artists and activists to teaching workshops on everyday activism, community resilience, and spiritual ecology, Loam's crew is committed to building a better world through arts-as-activism.
As an emerging magazine and movement, we are grateful for any kind of support you can offer. Have a story that you want to bring into fruition? A project you hope to share?
