Closing reception photos: FOOD = NEED OCADU


FOOD = NEED OCADU, a multi-displinary art event exploring issues of food, poverty and insecurity, celebrated its closing date with a screening of a short documentary film about the Food = Need performance art event, which was  curated by WIA Projects in the Fall of 2013 by Naked Eye Toronto filmmakers Diane Piruzevska and Anlina Rana.

The screening was followed by a panel discussion facilitated by WIA Project’s feminist artist-researchers Pam Patterson and Leena Raudvee. OCAD U students Che-Chi Liu, Shirley Cervalo and Greenest City Artist Cath Campbell lead a discussion on the politics of food insecurity and the value of creating sustainable food-linked projects.

The evening ended with a reception and screen printing workshop hosted in the Learning Zone, leaving participants with printed tote bags to help spread awareness of this issue. The workshop was lead by Mary “Mack” Tremonte an OCADU IAMD graduate student.

Thanks to everyone for their generous support to help create a successful and awesome night. The Learning Zone would also like to extend our thanks to Eireann Oughton’s and Leena Raudvee’s photographic contributions.
