Session Type: Panel
Food is viscerally associated with memories, place, traditions, and personal and collective history. For refugees and migrants, it can be a source of solace or a survival necessity, allow them to tell their own stories, and shift discussion from the system to the people. This session brings together a diverse group of panelists who have been involved with projects that use food and art to document refugee and migrant experiences, foster conversation, and connect people across generations and cultures.
- Understand the nuances of refugee/migrant experiences and the importance of art in healing, empowering, and connecting displaced communities.
- See how food can be used as a source of artistic inspiration and cultural expression for refugee/migrant communities.
- Learn how arts advocates and practitioners can develop culturally-relevant programming that helps to elevate refugee/migrant voices and stories.
