Thinking Food Futures
25 Jul 2020
4:00PM - 6:00PM
360 Court Street Unit #4
Brooklyn, NY 11231
This is an online event.
In these times of true uncertainty, engaging with RU’s current Food Futures residents Lily Consuelo Saporta Tagiuri, Esra Durukan, Yoko Inoue, Siri Lee, Rosa Nussbaum, Andrew Vigil-Emerson, and Allie Wist, has been a hugely inspiring reminder of the power of art and creativity in thinking through some of the challenges brought on by the pandemic. The pressing issues of food justice and resilience took on a new urgency as food supply chains broke down and we “social distanced” in line for groceries; supermarket workers were celebrated as “essential workers” though not better compensated; and communities of color are disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
Following three months of weekly workshops and discussions online, we invite you to join us Saturday, July 25, at 4pm for a sampling of what the Food Futures residents will present and discuss with Food Futures residency program curator Livia Alexander as part of THINKING FOOD FUTURES.
Meeting ID: 834 5426 3662
THINKING FOOD FUTURES, a major online event of performances, digital works, and talks will take place on Saturday, October 24, 2020. Please stay tuned for more information.
