SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN
Our submissions are currently OPEN
We are seeking papers and video proposals centred around what collective imagining or dreaming and abolition can look like in a material way.
This came both from listening to a conversation on love between poets Alice Notley and Precious Okoyomon and our experiences of sleeping in a wharenui beneath our tuupuna and the collective kaupapa of working in a wharekai.
When we reimagine and dream together how can we rethink what radical acts of love look like and how do we think of new ways of mitigating harm in our communities when putting people in cages (especially bodies that are already vulnerable) isn’t working?
Why do prisons exist and how do they reveal structures of power seeped in white supremacist imperialist logic?
What do racial geographies reveal about systemic racism and the ongoing effects of colonialism?
How have neoliberal rogernomic policies caused further detriment to the wairua of this land and all its people?
How can an abolitionist framework speak to ways of reimagining an indigenous led future in a time of plague?
We are looking for abstracts of up to 250 words that can be in a number of forms (poetic for instance) and videos no longer than five minutes.
