Weedy Collective Sanctuary is a new project effort for 2017 to look into how a Weedy Society may could look like. It takes its inspiration from the living and being of wild urban plants we are often call Weeds (Weed: “A herbaceous plant not valued for use or beauty, growing wild and rank). How about we are taking “wild weedy plant thinking” as an in road to create new types of societies. The place will become a safe haven for humans and non-humans to allow for re-wilding and spontaneous urban being. How about we really challenge deeply entrenched power through collective existence, not through the idea of retreats that is rooted in individualism.
It should become a place that allows to experiment with new forms of togetherness in the 21h century. What does “community mean in the 21h century” that will include human and non humans species? Is it time to decolonize the words “community/culture/native/immigrant” to envision a new kind of “community/culture/native/immigrant” in the 21h century? contact us if you need a safe haven and like to get involved in our new project effort. firstname.lastname@example.org
