How can the world we live in today lead to the world we want in the future? In post-conflict communities, citizens are daily engaged in conversations about how best to deal with the legacy of the past as well as how to move together toward a shared future. The craft of visionary fiction presents a unique opportunity to help create new worlds for communities in transition. Éist is pleased to present an emancipatory approach to storytelling that uses fantasy as a way to envision the future.
The first project in our “Food Sparks” series supported Kreung Cambodia at Detroit’s Allied Media Conference in June 2017.
Kreung Cambodia “inspires healing and growth through storytelling from the past, present and romanticized future. The aim is to connect generations and to discuss intergenerational trauma with food and recipes passed down from a refugee kitchen.”
