Curative Collective Conversation: Lisa Pegram
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 Lisa Pegram, a writer, educator, foodie and author of Cracked Calabash (Central Square Press). She is currently a literary publicist and acquisitions editor with a particular interest in authors who write books about the lives and concerns of women and people of color. Her own work most often explores life’s prism through the lens of wellness and food.
