Artists Engaged in Food Justice

We are artists coming together with urban farmers and gardeners for a workshop to explore the role of art in the movement towards food justice and equity.  This workshop, “Art & Movement Building: Strategies for Food Systems Change”, will take place at NESAWG’s annual conference in Philly, PA this October.

Our process will be documented on Facebook, from concept, including designing the workshop, to hosting the workshop, and some takeaways from attendees following the conference on October 26 and October 27, 2018.  As NESAWG’s annual It Takes a Region Conference brings together farm and food systems practitioners across the 12-state Northeast region, our workshop co-facilitators will join these folks to look at the trajectory of the food and farm movement and the role each of us can play in shaping its future.

Through this workshop, our team including artists, gardeners, and food systems folks will explore how relationships between food systems actors and artists can be a win-win, and how artists and the arts can be lifted up in food systems efforts.  Several co-facilitators will lead the group in interactive activities and small group conversation to facilitate dialogue and creativity.  Participants will walk away with ideas for the first steps they can take “back home” to engage with arts organizations and support artists in the movement.

Join us on Facebook at to follow our progress and get updates from our team, and come join us at the conference in October!
