  • The Stop: How the Fight for Good Food Transformed a Community and Inspired a Movement

    9/24/13
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Little Building
    Charles Beard Room

    Please join the Institute for Liberal Arts & Interdisciplinary Studies as we host Nick Saul and Andrea Curtis, authors of The Stop: How the Fight for Good Food Transformed a Community and Inspired a Movement. In 1998, when Nick Saul became executive director of The Stop, the little urban food bank was like thousands of other cramped, dreary, makeshift spaces, a last-hope refuge where desperate people could stave off hunger for one more day with a hamper full of canned salt, sugar and fat. Since that time, The Stop has undergone a radical reinvention. Participation has overcome embarrassment, and the isolation of poverty has been replaced with a vibrant community that uses food to build hope and skills, and to reach out to those who need a meal, a hand and a voice. What was once a simple food bank is now a thriving, internationally respected Community Food Centre with gardens, kitchens, a greenhouse, farmers' markets and a mission to revolutionize our food system. Come hear more about this inspiring transformation from the authors themselves.

  • Bright Lights: Hollow - An Interactive Documentary

    9/24/13
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Hollow (directed by Elaine McMillion '13)

    Hollow is a hybrid community participatory project and interactive documentary where content is created "for the community, by the community." The project combines personal documentary video portraits, user-generated content, photography, soundscapes, interactive data, and grassroots mapping on an HTML5 website designed to discuss the many stereotypes associated with the area, population loss, and potential for the future. Members of the community will take part in the filmmaking process by creating 20 of the 50 short documentaries in efforts to build engagement and social trust and empower the community to work together for a better future.
