The Art of Healing
Throughout history, the kitchen has existed as a place for bodily nourishment, a laboratory for healing and a site for restorative justice. This conversation will explore the ways that female caretakers have contributed to traditional medicine, how mental and physical pain is connected and whether systemic racism and cultural repression create a specific need for marginalized groups to engage in acts of wellness and healing. Speakers include Navina Khanna, executive director of HEAL Food Alliance; Samaria King, co-founder of Mutual Aid Apothecary; and Tsedaye Makonnen, interdisciplinary artist, featured in RECLAMATION: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals.
The conversation will be livestreamed on the museum’s Facebook page and nmwa.org/livestream. This program is available for free to the public, but if you would like to support this program, please consider making a $10 donation to the museum.
