who

My name is Lauren, and I love studying hope and humanity. Storytelling is the mode (words, photographs, poems) through which I try to better understand the spaces, people, and events around me. 

what

I first heard the term "Liturgical Space" on a podcast. Below is an excerpt of what it is, and why it is important.

"...At times of disruption, small pockets of people rise up, and they enact and create alternative [political/social/spiritual] space. Now I call these liturgies, 'liturgical spaces' - but I don't mean by that 'churches'.

This could be a book shop that does really cool events; it could be a coffee shop that you set up that creates a space for everyone to talk together in the community.

But these liturgical spaces are performative enactments of the world that you want to see in the present. They're performative enactments of the world you want to see. Temporary autonomous zones; spaces where there is equality; where people have a voice."

[Pete Rollins / Rob Bell]

where

Everywhere. The point of this virtual space of thought, consideration, and art, is to empower and engage you in creating your own (real and finite and ever-expanding) liturgical spaces.
