StoryHarvest: A Celebration of Art and Food from Seed to Table

October 15, 2011 @ 4:00 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Brazilian-American artist Ellie Markovitch creates a harvest celebration and community potluck. Cultivate community through cooking and eating, sharing stories, making music, and watching films. Bring your seeds, spoons, and stories! A multimedia exhibit by artist Ellie Markovitch will feature the North Troy program, “Uptown Summer,” an environmental justice coalition focusing on food justice, urban gardening, alternative transportation and grassroots media for community education. Collard City Growers, Missing Link Ministry, Troy Bike Rescue and Youth Media Sanctuary inaugurated “Uptown Summer” this year, with the assistance of Troy’s Weed and Seed Program.

Co-sponsored by the Freedom Square Coalition: Collard City Growers, Missing Link Street Ministry, Troy Bike Rescue, and The Sanctuary for Independent Media in partial fulfillment of Ellie Markovitch’s MFA in Integrated Electronic Arts at the Department of the Arts, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
