Liberation Garden

THE LIBERATION GARDEN

at the Haus of Glitter Performance Lab + Parq also known as the Esek Hopkins Homestead + Park

What secrets did our QT BIPOC ancestors leave in the soil for us?

What wisdom does mother earth offer for our decolonization movement?

How can Queer/Feminist/Anti-Racist-centered earthwork, grounded in creative practice, be a practice of internal, relational, ideological and systemic liberation?

The Liberation Garden represents The Haus of Glitter Performance Lab's research - at the intersection of land/earth, colonization, slavery, and revolution. While planting these gardens, The Haus of Glitter Dance Company + Glitter Goddess Collective is building installations, (virtual) performances, living history archives, community capacity and curriculum to engage in urgent creative practice around what intersectional decolonization looks like / sounds like / feels like / smells like / tastes like.
