After a long search, a new faerie space and a potential new sanctuary in the Iberian peninsula is about to become a reality. On the 1st of February we will get keys to Alto das Fadas, a healing space for queers in the mountains of Portugal, complementing Folleterre as currently the only radical faerie sanctuary so far in Europe.
Together with a crowdfunding campaign that is being launched now - we are also working to crowdsource materials to make this dream-land welcoming for faeries and faeries-to-be.
The sanctuary is currently empty and in order to start making gatherings in the upcoming spring we will need a lot of equipment! This includes beds, mattresses, kitchen utensils, construction and garden tools, interior furniture, blankets, covers, drag, etc.
How can Iberian faeries and queers help? Ask your local charity, grab that awesome sofa you've seen on the street, contact warehouses or closed businesses and start collecting things that might be useful. As an effort to reduce costs and keep our environment low impact, second hand or underused items are preferred.
In February our team of dedicated faeries will make an effort to collect all those materials and transport them to Alto das Fadas in our first visit to the land.
