Luca Wozniak

Permaculture & Film

Matthew Dayton from Visions Service Adventures

Lucas Wozniak grew up outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and felt called to the outdoors at a young age, exploring waterways, mountains, and forests around the state and beyond during some family trips to national parks. His love of camping, community, and outdoor skills led him to enroll in Boy Scouts, and he developed a deep appreciation for outdoor education as he worked his way up to Eagle, especially as a Trek Guide at the National Jamboree in West Virginia in 2013.

As an undergraduate at Temple University, Lucas further explored these interests. He expanded his sense of citizenship to the global scale as a communications intern for Voluntario Global in Buenos Aires over the summer of 2015, and enjoyed working with elementary and middle schools students as a volunteer tutor for Puentes Hacia el Futuro over several semesters. 

Lucas graduated in the spring of 2019 with a BFA in Film and Media Arts and a Minor in Philosophy. He applies his media-making skills wherever he goes, such as by making promo documentaries for the two organizations mentioned above, and he is excited to continue that practice with Visions this summer, this time with an immersive 360-degree camera.

Since graduating, Lucas has continued to search for ways to weave together ecology, community, and media as a participant in the Rising Earth Immersion program at the Eco-Institute this past fall, where he earned a Permaculture Foundations Certificate; a Teaching Assistant for a 360 filmmaking and virtual reality course at Temple this spring; and now as a summer leader on VISIONS Montana Summer. He is thrilled to be joining this community of adventurous humans and excited to see how the forthcoming enriching experiences will inspire his artistic practice at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications graduate program this fall.
