About the project:
We Are What We Eat is a collaboration between NEW ARTiculations and the Community Food Security Center of the Community Food Bank. The project uses modern dance and community stories to reveal how food connects us to each other, our environment, and our everyday lives. Through interactive workshops in dance, writing, and discussion, the project has engaged over 100 community participants in a “moving dialogue” about food issues. Participants have included City High School students, Pistor Middle School students,Family Literacy classes, and the public-at-large. Performance material comes directly from community contributions. A dozen community participants will perform with the company.
The project is one in a series of Community Food Bank endeavors utilizing the arts to educate people about their responsibilities as consumers and eaters dependent on a food system. Future projects will include digital storytelling, large-scale public art, literary arts, photography, and music.
We Are What We Eat is supported by thePima Arts Council, Punch Woods Endowment Fund, Community Food Bank, NEW ARTiculations, DanceLoft, and many generous individuals.
