Webinars related to food systems and/or community development.

 

Though the need to eat is certainly a constant, ideas about food and how we cook, eat, 
and share it are constantly shifting. The culture of food both reflects and help to
shape our society. For the past 20 years, interest in food — from the Food Network to
an exploding restaurant culture to an increase in appreciation for home cooking — has
been on the ascent. This has been buoyed by a multi-faceted “food movement” that
contains everyone from farmers to chefs concerned eaters to health and food justice
activists. Though there are synergies and momentum toward progressive change building within this
movement, there are also complex dynamics related to race, class, gender, and social
inequality. Sociologist Alice Julier has looked at subjects ranging from food as a
vehicle for gentrification to how race, gender, and socio-economic experience reveal
themselves around the dinner table. In this webinar we will dig into how inequality
plays out through a variety of aspects of our current food culture.

Sharing a powerful food policy story is vital to garnering support for new policies. Esri Story Maps, a web-based tool that combines maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content, provides one platform to develop and share these stories. Join us for an overview of the types of story maps available, how they have been used to tell impactful food policy stories, and a brief demonstration to help you get started making a story map of your own. You will hear from the head of Esri’s Story Maps team as well as a practitioner that has used story maps to communicate about her work on environment, agriculture, and food policy in Missouri. Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future staff members will also share their experiences using story maps to support food policy in Maryland. Attendees will leave the webinar with information on why and how to start creating and sharing story maps of their own.
