Curative Collective Conversation: The Belair-Edison School
In this series, join us for in-depth interviews with the Curative Collective, a group of Women, Arts, and Social Change partners working at the intersection of food, art, and social change. From advocacy and social justice to healing and restorative self-care, this diverse collective serves communities throughout the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area. The Curative Collective is also working on NMWA’s exhibition, RECLAMATION: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals to make sure that the exhibition incorporates local communities and their perspectives.
This week, we are joined by The Belair-Edison School staff in charge of the Iron Chef program. This culinary arts program began in the summer of 2020, born from the students’ desire to be creative. Students receive a challenge kit every month and cook meals for their families. Students then turn in photos that are presented at the school’s virtual Wellness Ambassador Program, a monthly mixture of food, fun, and family fitness that is open to all members of the school community.This event will be livestreamed on NMWA’s Facebook page and at nmwa.org/livestream.
