Event Description

Curative Collective Conversation: Lauren Von Der Pool

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 Lauren Von Der Pool, professional chef and founder of Von Der Pool Healthy Living Services. She’ll share more about her process in creating her work for RECLAMATION, her top #5WomenArtists that inspire her, and what she is working on now. 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.
