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.”
Join us online October 20 from 3:30pm to 5:00pm next seminar in the series:
