Stories of Food, Food as Story

January 28 at 10:00 am March 12 at 4:00 pm PST

Stories of food, food as story is a 4-session project-based workshop to explore our history and cultural heritage through food traditions. Local teaching artists will guide participants through the process of:

  • Identifying a food tradition through which they can learn about their history or culture
  • Conducting an oral history interview(s) to document the tradition
  • Using interview transcripts and memorabilia as source material as inspiration to create a short piece of creative nonfiction and/or a visual journal

Sessions will include a meal that highlights a food tradition in our community. This workshop is for anyone interested in tools and a structured process to connect with their loved ones, their culture or their community, and explore their story through food. No previous experience is necessary to participate!

Students may earn ILC credit.
