Who is it for?

The Arc Fest is for entrepreneurs, corporate gooddoers, hard-core volunteers, inspired freelancers, social impact bunnies, artists, doctors, gardeners _ _ _ [finish the series]. It is designed for young life and impact lovers from all over Europe who are…

  • already living or wanting to live their passion,
  • thrilled to meet dozens of like-minded people to have meaningful conversations and interactions with that go beyond small talk and “hey, add me on facebook if you like”,
  • excited to lift their life to a new level by being inspired and inspiring yourself and those around you,
  • do not chicken out when challenged, questioned or jeopardized, because they value “growth” over “playing tetris in my comfort zone”,
  • at some level sincerely wanting to make the world a better place! (YES!)


Tasting the Poem of Life. Yup.

The Arc Fest is a carefully curated community of game changers and change makers, of vision architects and day dreamers, of stowaways and outcasts, creatives and corporate yuppies. This on its own should be enough. If you are the planner type, here some more details.

On The Arc Fest we will:

  • Decelerate. Stop. Inhale and exhaleIn a bunch of workshops we’ll tackle questions such as: Where is my bottleneck to personal growth? How must I grow to become a more authentic and inspiring fellow or leader? Does my personal life need adjustment? What do I REALLY wanna head towards?
  • Party. Flowers in the hair. Noctilucent fireflies in the sky | The team has prepped experiences that you are likely to love until the end of days.
  • Inspire and be inspired. Play. Dream. Fall in loveWhat else? A bunch of speakers that will move your hearts and tickle your ambition, facilitators from The Arc network and beyond and… as always: REALLY REALLY GOOD FOOD. (Yumm…)

The Venue?



Casa del Abogat/Valencia

The venue of The Arc Valencia is situated atop a hill in the middle of a vast orange grove, originally a charming Spanish orange farm.  The house has 23 sleeping rooms, 5 living rooms, dining room / meeting room for about 50 persons, outdoor dining area for about 80+, 2 swimming pools and a 14000 m2 garden.

Please note that there is always a risk that the venue might need to be changed. Needless to say that – should this happen – you will be informed in due time. And that any alternative venue will be close to this one and of similar standards. 

Address: Casa del Abogat, Barxeta, 46667 Xativa, Valencia, Spain | How to get there (last bit of the trip is by taxi)
