What becomes possible when we seed and amplify transformative food narratives? Join a conversation with leading practitioners to explore the essential role of cultural and narrative strategies to reclaim and reimagine how we grow, cook, and gather around food.
Countless efforts to reshape food and agriculture in the U.S. perpetuate and reinforce dominant narratives rooted in extraction, exploitation, and white supremacy. Without intentionally addressing deep narratives to change the way we think about food, we will continue to struggle to shift actions and behaviors that are desperately needed to meet this moment of climate crisis, corporate consolidation, and political polarization. When we embrace a cultural approach to food, and invest in transformative narrative strategies, a world that nourishes our mutual flourishing and collective liberation becomes possible.
This briefing will explore orienting to a cultural framework for food systems transformation, immersing in narratives as community activation, the relationship between narrative strategy and strategic communications, and offer a case study of creative activation for cultural impact.
