  • Description

    Please join us on Saturday, September 19, 2020 @ 1 pm for the first event of Conversations in the Neighborhood, a public humanities series that focuses on food, which under normal circumstances brings us together in families, among friends, and in larger communities. Brought to you by the Center for Humanities and the Public Sphere, the City of Gainesville-Office of Equity and Inclusion, the Center for Arts, Migration, and Entrepreneurship, and other partners, the first workshop features Anna Tjé, a community organizer and transdisciplinary artist-researcher based in Paris.

    Anna Tjé invites people to embark on the journey of their favorite fruits from seed to consumption by using “exotic” fruits as a metaphor for the self to build a virtual community through conversation, tasting, and creative writing.

    Join us as we draw on our experiences to imagine relationships with selected fruits in a virtual healing space. This is an interactive workshop. Participants will receive an activity packet after their registration. We encourage participants to complete their activity packets and bring their answers and selected fruits with them!

    This event will be recorded.
