Re-Alliance Members | Evoking Belonging
Evoking Belonging – Beyond Fragile Beings in Fragile States Evoking Belonging is a Social Sculpture practice evoking culture, identity and belonging to redress systemic inequities in community engagement and participatory development practice. Evoking Belonging was founded by Dianne Regisford. Dianne's work specifically focuses on racial, cultural and healing justice for African Diaspora communities primarily in the global north. Evoking Belonging is a regenerative ARTivist practice, which cultivates the ‘soul soil’ by nurturing expression of the ‘whole being’. Specifically focussing on the historic displacement of African Diaspora communities, over time, the practice builds resilience, evokes civic enlivenment and fosters healing justice, in turn enabling equitable participation. Evoking Belonging serves as a preparatory step to community engagement processes by addressing issues of white supremacy, power and sovereignty for communities, which are less heard, less seen, underserved and therefore easily forgotten in policy and governance processes which affect their lives.

Featuring grassroots community leaders from areas affected by disasters and displacement where Green Releaf worked, this film begins to document the knowledge learned and practices implemented over time.
Re-Alliance Members | Almost Heaven Farms, Nepal - Youth in Permaculture group
With the COVID-19 pandemic restricting access to school in Nepal, one group of teenagers is taking their education into their own hands with a Permaculture diploma course. Re-Alliance member Almost Heaven Farms (permaculturenepal.com) is the setting of this short film made by young Permaculture practitioners. "We are a group of teenagers age 13-17 who have grown up on Almost Heaven Farms, a permaculture education centre in the hillside of the eastern Himalayas. We miss going to school and especially seeing our friends. But the problem is the solution. We need to be educated, we need to learn. It doesn’t look like the schools are going to open anytime soon. So the farm now becomes our full-time classroom." - Micah Zion
