Launch of Power of Food podcast

Gratitude to Helen Fisher of We Are Carbon for her generous and skilful production of Power of Food podcast. Together with Nick Wier of the Open Food Network and Kay Johnson, Director of the Larder, we explore how, through the connective power of food, the OFN and its partners can bring about systems change towards eco-culturally just food futures.

Freedom kinships for collective liberation

Within the bountiful energies of Karuna Dartmoor, Miche offered a retreat space for white-bodied kin looking to address racism for collective liberation. Over three days, she shared an ecology of practices emerging from her therapeutic arts and earth-centred processes, including Sooth Sayer’s Circle. Please be in touch if you are interested in joining the June 2025 June at Karuna.

Tasting Ubuntu

Tasting Ubuntu is a pioneering Research Residency between Living Justice, the Centre for the Study of the Afterlife of Violence and the Reparative Quest (AVReQ), and the Centre for Sustainability Transitions (CST) at Stellenbosch University. The residency engaged with a research community of students, researchers, food growers, local residents, not-for-profit and government. Drawing inspiration from the Southern African relational philosophies of Ubuntu, we together explored the connections between food and racial justice through a sequence of convivial arts-based methods and convivial food rituals.

Artist Research Residency

2024 marks the tenth year of our Artist Research Associateship with the pioneering Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR) at Coventry University. Gratitude to Professor Michel Pimbert and Dr Julia Wright for their continued support as thinking-partners and for the opportunity to innovate and enliven transformative arts-based research practices, as shared in Subtle Agroecologies. © 2024.
