Social Practice: Food Justice

This interdisciplinary social practice studio presents thematic issues in conjunction with the Santa Fe Art Institute residency program. Creative capacities are explored in relationship to community through projects that can be interactive, socially engaged, collaborative, committed to human relationships and possible change. The theme for the 2014-2015 year is Food Justice. From the SFAI Website (describing their residency program): This program encourages creative minds to come together and examine the territory of food justice. Together, we will ask how can we use diverse creative practices to confront inherent social, cultural and economic problems in our food system. Further, how can we bring together insights from creative fields, environmental sciences, sustainable agriculture, critical theory, and food.
