2023 Residency Program

We are excited about our theme for our 2023 Residency: FOOD & AGRICULTURE.

Food is inextricably connected to thriving people, sustainable environments, prosperous economies and community resilience. Looking forward, many agricultural practices will need to adapt (if they haven’t already) to meet the challenges posed by changes to our environment, climate and population. In recent years, significant efforts have been made to shift away from the industrialized system that currently dominates the food industry, in the hope that a collection of more holistic techniques and sources of food production solutions will take its place. These efforts also explore collaborative forms of community interactions that give rise to community-supported agricultural initiatives such as farmers’ markets and seed to table co-operatives, which encourage us to eat more seasonally and locally.

Aiming to improve our understanding of regional community food systems (from production to processing to distribution to consumer) and to explore strategies for strengthening local food systems, for this residency cycle we will host artists, culture bearers, scientists, scholars and researchers to reflect on the theme of food & agriculture as foundational expressions of life.
