An update from our friends at Write Your Roots:
Write Your Roots is an all-volunteer project that invites community members to write and perform original monologues about their relationship with food. The purpose of the project is to celebrate food passions and traditions, build community bonds across difference, and promote local food initiatives toward a more just and sustainable food future.
This performance was originally rehearsed to be performed live at Etnias Global Theater in March 2020. Because of COVID-19, we postponed that production and then regrouped, deciding to produce a video version of our work.
We hope to mount another Write Your Roots some time in 2021 as it becomes clearer when we will be able to gather in groups safely again. In the meantime, Anyone who is interested in reflecting on food in this time of pandemic is invited to contribute to the Write Your Roots blog.
