Our Ecology is the first of three We-Lab programs that pairs together Aurora Commons with Socrates Sculpture Park community to have integrated conversations around Weaving Liberation for all Beings (WE-Lab). In this program we will consider diaspora and identity specifics, how we understand our new home lands, and how our ecology mixes into a new formation of the anthropocene.

About Weaving Liberation for all Beings (WE-Lab)

Weaving Liberation of All Beings is an anti-supremacist and pro-liberation framework in which the planet, humans, and other-than-human kin (animals, plants, and biota) are treated as belonging to one whole system. Weaving Liberation is an ideology that highlights our interconnections: cultural, ecological, political and emotional. These are not separate spheres.They work together in an ever spiraling web of relationships and responsibility that tie us to the land, kin, and one another.  Aurora Commons in partnership with Socrates Sculpture Park considers Weaving Liberation for all Beings (WE-Lab).

About Daniel Lim

Daniel Lim is a queer social change maker of Chinese descent who was born in Myanmar and raised in an immigrant, working-class family in the unceded territory of the Canarsie-Lenape people in present day Brooklyn, New York. These identities and the respective positions of privilege and oppression that he occupies in his life shape his work as founder and principal of Daniel Lim Consulting, a social justice consulting, facilitation, and training firm that partners with organizations and communities to build regenerative and liberatory cultures. His practice is strongly rooted in the wisdom of living systems, teachings of Black- and indigenous-led liberation and sovereignty movements, and draws on the somatic healing and liberatory practices of his Chinese-indigenous heritage. Daniel’s biggest passion is to achieve collective liberation for all our relations and repair humanity’s relationship to the land and our more-than-human kin. He studied ecology, ecological design and community development at the University of Vermont (B.S. Natural Resources, McNair Scholar), and community-based planning, environmental justice, and disaster planning at Pratt Institute (M.S. City and Regional Planning). Daniel writes on Medium.
