Assembling Recipes for Sustainability

CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: Assembling Recipes for Sustainability

Deadline April 20, 2022.

Calling all artists, writers, activists, scholars, organizers, visionaries, and revolutionaries: we invite you to contribute to a collective recipe box project through the mail. Let us inspire each other with our ideas, DIY solutions, creative or speculative imaginings, practical tips, inherited strategies, poetic responses and plans for sustaining our work in (the) art world(s).

Participants are invited to contribute a ‘recipe’ for sustainability – with ‘recipe’ to be interpreted as literally or as creatively as desired. These recipes will be submitted on an index card and the collection of cards will be assembled in a recipe box. 

There is no cost to participate, and all participants will be provided with a self-addressed stamped envelope and a card to submit their recipe. In exchange for contribution, participants will receive a copy of the entire collection.

This collective mail art project is curated by the Centre for Sustainable Curating’s inaugural postdoctoral fellows, Drs. Amanda White and Zoë Heyn-Jones. “Assembling Recipes for Sustainability” is a component of “Imagining The Centre For Sustainable Curating,” the CSC’s year-long visioning exercise to imagine, collaborate, and discuss the ways we can take seriously the goal of the Centre to be sustainable in all ways: that is, sustainable in teaching about best ecological practices for exhibition making, sustainable in how we might engage with the world around us, and sustainable in the outcomes built through our efforts. “Imagining The Centre For Sustainable Curating” is supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

Registration is now closed, Thank you to all who signed up to participate! More info to follow soon via email.
