Wolves Lane Centre, 2 pm, Sunday 7th May 2023

A dreaming space to playfully create and redefine the ways we build and sustain community. In this session we’ll go back to basics: we will play, use our hands, and our voices to create collective memories that live on and make history. The session will take place outside in nature so wear comfortable clothing. Materials, snacks and refreshments will be provided, just come as you are!

Please register HERE for this event: This gathering will be capped at 25 people, with priority to those who have previously been involved with Bloom.

This event is part of the department of Unruly histories exhibition public programme produced by Meera Shakti Osborne.

Bloom Collective (Idman Abdurahaman + Giselle Richelieu + Lateisha Davine Lovelace-Hanson) is a nature programme dedicated to platforming the experiences and teachings of black female and gender non-conforming nature practitioners whilst also providing safe spaces for black and brown people to be in community with each other and the earth. Idman Abdurahaman is a black feminist food justice organiser. She is curious about the ways we get into the right relationship with each other and the land. Giselle Richelieu is a creative channel who finds joy and healing wisdom in nature and community. Lateisha Davine Lovelace-Hanson (they/b. 1989) is an interdisciplinary artist and social justice practitioner of Jamaican heritage. Lateisha's practice delves into spiritual - bodily - nature relationships as queered creative dreaming spaces.

Meera Shakti Osborne is a resident artist at Arts and Media School Islington, where Cubitt has managed four artists studios since 2018 and which is a key site for Reclaim Islington. Reclaim Islington is a two-year programme which supports Islington communities with lived experience of exclusion to collectively explore their narratives, stories and shared histories. Reclaim Islington is generously supported by Freelands Foundation’s Space to Dream and Art Fund’s Reimagine funds.
