The Reclamation of Terra: Anarchy for Change by Teague Leigh is a multimedia, multisensory visual arts exhibition.
The Opening Night Gala will see multiple diverse LGBTQIA+ performers and allies entertain audiences, as well as free finger food and refreshments, all in the name of community unity and reversing climate devastation.
Teague Leigh is an autistic queer trans man from planets unknown, currently residing in Naarm. Once upon a time he was anthologised in various literary works and performed his erotic spoken words around the country. Now due to various acquired disabilities he is a landscape photographer, letting his art speak for him whilst celebrating the environment he loves.
Nature has always been a great source of calmness for Teague and being diagnosed with autism in adulthood, it makes total sense that being in a void of constant assault is healing. For many, getting away or simply sitting in green spaces is a rejuvenating tonic. Teague is invested in saving these dwindling pockets of nature as they help him live his life as a functioning member of society. What shall become of us if nature is stripped away? How shall we regain equilibrium and contribute to society?
