Event Details

A Community Walk and Foraged Meal programmed in conjunction with the NURTUREArt exhibition "The Department of Human and Natural Services", curated by Mariel Villeré.

This second iteration of The C.U.R.B. is a roving picnic through East Williamsburg in which guests will participate in acts of environmental remediation and stewardship, followed by a meal of experimental tamales and wild brews foraged (almost entirely) from the city streets. Learn how Mugwort, Mulberries, Amaranth, Pigeons, and more came to be our neighbors, and what they can teach us about surviving and thriving in the midst of our own hot mess. Through citizen science and storytelling, Banquet host Candace Thompson seeks to render visible our fragile food web in the era of manmade climate change, explore our historically complicated relationship(s) to land, and imagine alternative forms of economy and ecology that are regenerative and resilient rather than exploitative and extractive.

PLEASE NOTE: this event will be video documented, and some of the foraged food items are slightly contaminated due to human activity. As such, the meal is not suitable for children, and individuals who are (or are planning to become) pregnant should use discretion.
