Braid and Flow: Food


Welcome to the Braid and Flow series. To join, please sign up here: shorturl.at/gnsQW

For now, these meetings will be online. The series kicks off at 6 p.m. on Monday, May 18, with a brief introduction to Braid and Flow and this month's topic of food before we break into three separate guided conversations exploring these aspects of food and food systems: 1) Access & Distribution, 2) Health & Nutrition, and 3) Ecology & Gardening.

We will meet again at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 22, to build on the previous week's conversations, and attempt to bring those strands back together through creative practices.

All are welcome to join for either or both gatherings. Afterwards, the leaders for the month will share out readings, resources, inspirations, and ideas and choose the next month's theme and discussion leaders.

The organizers for this month are Jelagat Cheruiyot, Shana griffin, Aron Chang, Grace Treffinger, Rebecca Snedeker, Denise Frazier, and Carina Vance Mafla. We will convene twice each month to explore themes that stretch across scales and disciplines, such as food and food systems, racial violence, and technology and intimacy. Our goal is to learn from each other, and to strengthen the theories and the practices that guide our work as artists, activists, researchers, policy makers, writers, scientists, designers, teachers, students, and leaders, all working to navigate the Anthropocene and the challenges of climate change and pandemic. If you are committed to sharing your own work and experiences, learning, and dialogue, please join us.

These conversations are hosted by Water Leaders Institute, The New Orleans Center for the Gulf South, and the Gulf South Anthropocene Working Group, with the support of the following people: Jelagat Cheruiyot, Shana griffin, Aron Chang, Grace Treffinger, Rebecca Snedeker, and Denise Frazier. Please reach out if you'd like to join the team or otherwise support these convenings.

This series builds on the April 9 FIKA on Climate Change, the Anthropocene, and COVID-19, which you can view here: shorturl.at/cS026. Many thanks to everyone who took part. Your contributions and your suggestions are the basis for how we're thinking about the structure and purpose of Braid and Flow.
