Event Description

Curative Collective Conversation: Comida Casera Project

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 Comida Casera Project by Evelyn Rydz, an ongoing project using food and storytelling to create connections and cultivate community. The intimate, multigenerational events they produce create a space for both strangers and friends to share stories and food inspired by women who give them the sense of home. This event will be livestreamed on NMWA’s Facebook page and at nmwa.org/livestream.

Women, Arts, and Social Change is a public programs initiative that highlights the power of women and the arts as catalysts for change.
