We are the future of partying: A group of event designers led by Jacques Martiquet setting out to create a more engaging, inclusive, and healthy party culture. We leverage partying to promote health and community. We are set on developing the formula for the healthiest party on Earth.
Applying advanced party science, Party4Health is a Vancouver-based group on a mission to create Earth’s most engaging, inclusive, healthy party experiences. The fuel for these parties? Good people and heart-pumpin’ beats, as opposed to substances. Known for their Hike Raves, Bike Raves, and Morning Beach Parties, Party4Health leverages partying as a force for good: promoting social inclusion and social literacy, spreading fun and positivity, educating youth about healthy lifestyles, and boosting mental and physical health.
The Party4Health guarantee: You’ll feel better the next day than if you had not partied!
Why we exist?
Embodied in partying is a tremendous opportunity for undermining division, spreading positive mental health, building lasting professional and personal relationships, encouraging physical activity, and promoting community and team development.
In North America, this opportunity is tarnished by toxic social norms. Conventional entertainment, party, and nightlife events often encourage “drunkenness” and are associated with negative health effects by design. These include drug use, hearing loss, motor vehicle accidents, violence, sexual violence, sense of humiliation, crime, and illness.
The especially sad truth is that substance use forms the underlying social lubricant for these events.
From a broader viewpoint, modern recreation has taken a turn for the worse; screens are replacing other human beings; engagement with the world is becoming more and more passive; and apathy and inactivity are being spread. You witness this on public transit, in nightclubs, and at music festivals. We are losing our ability to engage in genuine, euphoric human connection.
Our Mission: Redefine partying as a healthy, positive force in our global communities.
