Two dark-skinned adults grin together amid an audience of people. One adult faces the viewer and wears glasses, a patterned top, and their dark hair in a bun; while the other is in profile and and has long, dark braids.
Join us for a conversation about global food access, gender, class, and labor.

Event Description

Place and Power

To what degree are identities shaped by food exchanges—from cultivation and harvest to preparation and consumption? In this virtual program, food rights activist Ianne Fields Stewart, interdisciplinary artist Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz, culinary historian Laura Shapiro, and interdisciplinary artist Zina Saro-Wiwa will discuss questions of global food access, gender, class, and labor.

This event will be livestreamed on NMWA’s Facebook page and at 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 at the registration link.

Women, Arts, and Social Change is a public programs initiative that highlights the power of women and the arts as catalysts for change. Fresh Talk, the initiative’s signature program, features cause-driven conversations with leading artists, designers, activists, social innovators, and others. This season, we are focusing on the relationship between women, art, and food as part of the Reclamation: Recipes, Remedies, and Rituals series.
