A tribe is a place to belong, a group to protect, a people united by ties of descent, customs and traditions. Or just people that think alike.
The Performer = Arts
Performers love to be the centre of attention. And as generous souls use these opportunities to draw attention to injustices. Performers like to inspire others to be welcoming and open people.
The Performers Tribe is made of people who by their very nature push the limits of social convention. Performers are constantly seeking new and dynamic opportunities to make the world look better, sound better, taste better and smell better. These creative, spontaneous people embrace the old with the new, local with foreign and any other imaginable mix. Friendly and embracing of all, Performers are just plain fun!
