A Taste of Sustainability

Presented as part of Just In Time: 30 Years of Collective Practice
Thursday, June 20, 2019 | 5-7pm
Location: Starting at Vox Populi, outward to the Railpark
Please BYOC – bring your own cup!

On June 20, 2019, from 5-7pm artist/curator Suzanne L. Seesman and curator/Just In Time exhibition manager Tina Plokarz host a public discussion and potluck that explores the question: “What is needed to provide a sustainable future in the city of Philadelphia?”

Cultural-producers and community stakeholders from a wide range of perspectives will be invited to reflect publicly on the concept of sustainability, illuminating its promises and realities through the lenses of ecology, architecture, health, arts, and culture. Invited guests will exchange their approaches to the subject of sustainability as it relates to their own creative and professional practices while also sharing with the public their recipes for sustenance. All in attendance will be invited to share in the conversation and refreshments which will include homemade bread and spreads and non-alcoholic beverages. We hope that this conversation and shared snack provides a glimpse into what we might collectively imagine for the future.

Please note that this is a progressive event. We’ll start at Vox Populi, walk to nearby public locations and end our conversation at the Railpark with shared snacks.

After the evening’s conversation, the hosts will make shared recipes for sustainability available as an online collection on Vox Populi’s website as well as a limited print edition.

The conversation is presented in conjunction with Vox Populi’s 30th Anniversary celebrations and in partnership with Friends of the Rail Park.
