Maija’s manifesto ideas

Ideas in 10min

1. Become guardians of the land

By learning about the ecosystems within and with which you co-exist.

2. Rewrite the culture of property ownership.

Replace with a culture of guardians of the land and its ecosystems.

3. Re-write common law.

Become commoners without lords (landowners)
Know your history and tell your story

5. Take your freedom not from others in perpetuity but from within and for everyone

6. Co-create through dialogue not consumption


I have uploaded the paper I drafted in 2015 ‘Art: The Common’ when we first started plotting Dissent. Plotting the map. The landmarks. The passions.

Welcome to the ‘common space’.

I feel the pull to revisit the themes as they are more relevant than ever.

Australian born, mixed-media artist, Maija Liepins focuses on the sensory and emotional experience in her visual dreamscapes. Repetitive actions such as dream journals or collecting visual impressions with her mobile phone generates material with which to reveal the subtle, ‘underneath’. Maija’s drawings and films allude to a symbolic mythology as if the intangible substance of dream is a material as real as ink and clay. Her practice is driven by a pursuit of freedom - to express, to create, and to collaborate without inculturated inhibition.
