So, where on Earth do we BELONG?
Last episode we investigated what it means to have a transient relationship to land - to constantly roam, to migrate to another place, or even to be forcibly displaced. In Chapter 2 of our land series, we're exploring the opposite. Looking at what it means to belong to a specific place. And what impact a sense of belonging to and connection with land has on us emotionally, physically, materially, politically and socially.
Taking it beyond the capitalist notion of land belonging to us, we challenge the existing frameworks of ownership and power over land and try to establish what it is that gives us a meaningful relationship with the land that we occupy - and subsequently - to each other as a human race.
We go on this important and thought provoking journey with activist, Javier Sanchez-Rodriguez, from Anne Matthews Trust and Design Researcher, Andre Reid, from Kiondo.
