The world is in need of a little more love these days, and there is no better way to spread the good vibes than with good old fashioned a dance party.
The #SaveLove Decentralized Dance Party (DDP) is planned for Vancouver on Valentine’s Day and will also launch simultaneously in Austin, San Franciso, and New York.
The DDP was founded in 2009 by Vancouverites Gary Lachance and Tom Kuzma. Since then, 73 DDPs have been organized in North America and Europe in efforts to create a spontaneous public celebration with people from all backgrounds, ages, and cultures.
This Valentine’s Day dance party will aim spread some love in the world.
“The War on Love is real. Across the globe, there are countless forces that seek to corrupt, commodify, and co-opt the ways in which we express our love for each other and ourselves,” said Lachance in a release. “Together, we will storm our cities with hundreds of synchronized boomboxes and defend our societies from those who would have us forget what it means to be super Human!”
