commongroundoc presents: 10 Year Anniversary Show - Radical Love

About this Event

”The moment we choose to love we begin to move against domination, against oppression. The moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others. That action is the testimony of love as the practice of freedom.” 

- bell hooks, “Love as the Practice of Freedom” 

For the last ten years, commongroundoc has been a creative space that offers collective healing through artistic expression, recognizes our collective struggle and celebrates our diverse, complex backgrounds.  It is important to have creative, artistic spaces that help us navigate healing, grief, recovery, and above all, joy that encourages honest, vulnerable conversations and experiences. 

To lead with love requires us to continuously unlearn and unpack what it means to be worthy of love, to love ourselves and to share love with others. commongroundoc is purposeful in offering a space that fosters radical love.

In this moment, as we move towards liberation through love, we ask:

  • How do we lead with love?
  • What does it mean to love our community, and work from a place of love? 
  • How do we practice love towards others and ourselves?

In our 10th year, we are within a critical, historic moment. Now, more than ever, it is clear that the systems in which our society operates are broken, violent and oppressive. Yet just as clear, the collective power we possess as a community in unity is immovable. Through our pain and suffering, we must remember to love so fiercely that when they see us they will know exactly how it should be done. We must be so free, open, and unapologetic in the ways we express love to ourselves and one another that we create connection and empathy. In doing so, we will move in solidarity. As bell hooks said, “Without justice, there can be no love.”
