Living with Soul Food

Living with Soul Food

SOUL food is not only good for your body but it is good for the environment. When you eat both seasonally and locally you utilizes a lot less resources and thus reducing your carbon footprint. Context: “There’s an important cultural difference, too, that informs Americans’ expectations and use of public spaces: We’re not exactly a European café-sitting culture, or an Asian streetmarket one, or a Latin public-lounging one. But the explosion of coffee culture, farmers’ and flea markets, food vendors, street festivals, and more, seems to suggest that we are moving towards an increasingly globalized idea of what vibrant urban life is all about, embracing all the benefits it can bring—sociality, safety, economic activity, civility, and so on. As urban populations steadily grow and cities compete with each other to top “livability” lists to attract residents, investment, and tourists, they are naturally learning from each other and adopting best practices. “ - from SPONTANEOUS INTERVENTIONS: DESIGN ACTIONS FOR THE COMMON GOOD by Cathy Lang Ho http://www.spontaneousinterventions.org/statements http://archpaper.com/news/articles.asp?id=6803 http://smartmuseum.uchicago.edu/exhibitions/feast/ Ideas: Showing Soul Food Junkies and Having Byron Hurt the Director as part of the event SATURDAY
