Socrates x Aurora Commons Field Guide
June 29  & July 27, 2024
Begins 11am

Aurora Commons, in partnership with Socrates Sculpture Park, considers Weaving Liberation for all Beings (WE-Lab) through a series that brings together community members to explore three critical themes: power, ecology, and ceremony.

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. 

Each program will be led by two practitioners, one that comes from Socrates neighborhood partners and the other from Aurora Commons WE-Lab collective. Each practitioner will take on one of the topics and share knowledge through praxis (i.e., interactive experiences) as a creative and spiritual model.
