FINDING FLOWERS PRESENTS INAUGURAL EUC SEMINAR SERIES “MIIJIM: FOOD AS RELATIONS”

 

Miijim: Food as Relations is a Fall and Winter conversation series presenting renowned Indigenous, Black and People of Colour food scholars, growers, artists and advocates who will gather virtually from across Canada. Discussions will cover the interconnections between art, earthwork, planting, cultivation and harvesting experiences that decenter colonial frameworks, while thinking through labour and power relations related to food justice in urban and rural communities.

The fall segment of this series will feature conversations on Indigenous Food Sovereignty; Black and Indigenous food relations; Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Food Systems; Learning from Manoomin; and Art and Migrant Worker Justice. Conversations will continue into the winter semester turning to art related themes including: Animal-Plant-Human Relations; Food and Gardens as Remediation; Gardens as Art as Relations; and Community Food Stories.

This inaugural Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change Seminar Series will be presented by the Finding Flowers Project, and is part of Lisa Myers’ EUC graduate class “Food, Land and Culture.”

The series will begin on October 6, 2:30-4:30pm, presenting a conversation on 𝙄𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙜𝙚𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙁𝙤𝙤𝙙 𝙎𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙞𝙜𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙚𝙨, bringing together Secwepemc artist, curator and co-creator of Bush Gallery 𝗧𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗮 𝗪𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗮𝗿𝗱 in conversation with Dawn Morrison (Secwepemc), Founder and Research Curator of the Working Group in Indigenous Food Sovereignty, and Mi’kmaw professor and Indigenous land and food justice advocate 𝗦𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗿𝘆 𝗣𝗶𝗰𝘁𝗼𝘂, to consider their work in defence of Indigenous sovereignties, and in relation to the reclamation of land, medicines, foods and plants.
