Re-Turning to Earth (Grief Circle for BPOC)

Earth, an in-person grief circle to acknowledge ecological loss. 6PM BST, Wed 28th Sep, Phytology, Bethnal Green Nature Reserve, London, E2 9RR
Tickets -
Please note, this session will be for Black and People of Colour communities.

This grief space will hold and support collective acknowledgment of the ecological loss brought about by ongoing violent systems of racial capitalism, borders, and imperialism. Many of us from racialised communities experience multiple forms of loss, especially in relation to belonging and un-belonging, as well as the disproportionate number of deaths in our communities. In the wake of such drastic ecological violence, this space will consider birth, renewal and cycles of loss to reach a place of hope.

In addition to the sharing of trauma-informed body-based work to support grief, this space will see Farzana Khan (@farzana.k.khan) sharing new writing that has been produced during her residency with @phytologyuk, curated by @adelaide.bannerman.

We are inspired by the quote 'What happens if the hollowness we feel is the prolonged absence of hearing birdsong?' (Francis Weller). We acknowledge that Francis Weller drew on the work Sobonfu Some and the Dagara people, and honour this lineage and African grief traditions.
