The Foodshed Project digital stories are online!
Storytelling plays a central role in the building of environmental and social justice movements. In The Foodshed Project, digital storytelling is being used to document food movement building and to create spaces for dialogue between diverse players in the Southern Ontario FoodShed.
The FoodShed Project brings together agrifood organizations in the public, private and nonprofit sectors working collaboratively with food scholar/activists and students to excavate, document and link groups in a community of food practice considered one of the most innovative in North America. It works toward a vision of a resilient Ontario agrifood system, that integrates native and diasporic populations, cuisines, and crops, and is centred on small scale, networked, culturally diverse enterprises.
To get involved in digital storytelling, please consider Dr. Deborah Barnndt's winter 'Cultural Production Workshop: Image' in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University.
