“…and the walls became the world all around.”
Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are
We are the activists, the artists, the air and the animals; the community builders, the doulas, the healers, the herbalists, and the plants; the poets, the storytellers, the makers, the mavericks, the musicians and the music. We choose possibilities, not parameters. WE THE UNCIVILISED.
