Miijim Food as Relations Inaugural EUC Seminar Series presents "Migrant Workers and Food Justice"
November 24, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
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.”
Join us online November 24 from 2:30pm to 4:30pm next seminar in the series:
Migrant Workers and Food Justice
This conversation is grounded in artistic practices that raise important considerations of labour and living conditions of those workers who grow the food that fills the grocery stores. We will bring together activist and advocate Evelyn Encalada, and Justice 4 Migrant Workers member Tzazna Maranda to consider their calls to action through art and activism.
This conversation will be held on Zoom and live-streamed through Facebook.
