Carnivals & Events

Where is it safe to grieve? Are there spaces for celebration and joy left in our increasingly flat world? We co-enact spaces that allow different emancipatory expressions and explorations of generative political imaginaries that allow for peace.

      Inspired by the ancient juridical practice of ‘claiming sanctuary’ or seeking asylum, Sanktuaree is a week-long multi-activity pedestrian festival that brings together various practitioners, neighbourhoods, organizations and groups to host sites that disrupt monumental power.
