Abstract or Description

Since Sakiya was established in 2016, on a hillside near the Palestinian village of Qiniya that had been quietly rewilding itself since the beginning of the Israeli occupation in 1967, this art/science/agriculture residency, progressive academy, and farm has generated a compelling set of propositions for what it might mean to expand the meaning of “rewild.” Working with local artisans, farmers, and villagers as well as international artists, architects, writers, and students, the cultivation of knowledge at Sakiya involves processes of co-production generated not only through interdisciplinary collaborations between art, science, and technology but also, crucially, through attention to the land and sensitivity to its indigenous more-than-human lifeways. This process, in turn, addresses the climate crisis from the perspective of those most acutely affected by it.
