Event Description

Curative Collective Conversation: Tola Akerele

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 Nigerian interior designer Tola Akerele joins us to discuss her book The Orishirishi Cookbook (2020).

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.
