This year at the World Village Festival treat yourself to a momentary pause from the brutal conditions of Advanced Capitalism at Ernie’s Pop Up Spa. Enjoy naturally artistic therapies, holistic hair care and a spa spectacle. Ask about Aura Readings for Dogs.
 
Since 2015, artist Ernest Truely has been developing Ernie’s Pop Up Spa at international art festivals, cultural events as well as on the street. He offers spa services including haircuts and explores themes of care through touch, trust, intimacy and transformation. This edition of Ernie’s Pop Up Spa is produced and presented by Catalysti at the World Village Festival.
 
Ernie’s Pop Up Spa addresses alternative economies in the context of sustainable artistic practice in the Anthropocene.
