Transformation Festival in New York


The international Transformation Festival is first and foremost a cultural event featuring high-quality presentations of concerts, lectures, readings, workshops, installations, meditations and interactive happenings. Danish Cultural Institute is happy to support the festival founded by the Danish Vocalist Lotte Arnsbjerg and the American Composer Carman Moore.


Transformation Festival celebrates the overcoming of trauma and victimhood. This walk through flames comes in myriad forms and sizes, from personal to international.


Performance, music, lectures, shared experience, testimonials, power workshops and healing tools. Speakers and artists of all kinds seeking experienced evidence of transformation in the interaction with audience.



Art is the voice of transformation

The first Transformation Festival was presented very successfully over 4 days in Copenhagen’s Theater Island in June 5-8, 2016. Since then, the festival has been held both in New York (Center at West Park, Manhattan) and in Denmark at several locations in mainly 4-day programs during which artists, musicians, therapists, survivors of traumas and other speakers have shared their testimonies, songs, and ideas on how transformation from life-threatening victimhood to a life of enhanced personality can be achieved.
