Abundance: Ancestral crops as resilience and research

April 22, 2017

Gallery 400 Lecture Room

To investigate the intersections of queer, black, and indigenous identities, charlesRyanlong and Ian Kerstetter (PansyGuild) are growing crops of their ancestors. Planting these legacies in the same soil allows interconnected histories to literally grow–not simply suggest–solidarity and allows for the synthesis of something new. Thus, farming becomes performance, research, and praxis. Charles and Ian hope to grow a healing practice that points towards abundant futures.
