Land Sovereignty

Knitting together a rich history of unity through land and labor, the second Sovereignty “site” is envisioned as a network of four urban gardens located in North Philadelphia. Programming and installations across these gardens will inform the ways in which plants, seeds, and land reinforce people's connection to ancestry and serve as vehicles for nourishment, healing, and future growth.

sovereignty

Within Philadelphia Assembled, sovereignty is not understood by one single definition, instead, a collective representation of the term is revealed through layered questions about autonomy, equity, and freedom. Through these questions, the Sovereignty atmosphere seeks to address the specific concepts of land and the alternative marketplace as each relates to histories of self-determination, the preservation of community wisdom, and new forms of cultural exchange. These ideas are being explored from within a context of, what author bell hooks terms, “communities of resistance,” spaces that “can emerge around our struggles for personal self-recovery as well as our efforts to organize collectively.”
