The Food Art Research Network began in 2020 with a reconition that artists working in long term practices connected to place also value peer learning and exchange. Since then the network continues to foster lasting connections between members, across trans-local creative contexts. We are committed to slow processes akin to composting, in which we are mapping and unmapping our shared interests across diverse conditions. We are attentive to the connections across places between ancient and ancestral food practices and we believe that connection to food, land and waterways is allied with practices of culture. We want to find ways to understand and share these connections without collapsing the differences and struggles that also exist.
