Recipes of Resilience: Transforming Trauma Through Food

What are the ways in which war and mass violence shape a community’s traditional foods and those who cook it? How can food tell a community’s story of trauma and resilience in colonized and post-conflict areas? We will connect with food-based projects using traditional foods and styles of cooking as a way to create spaces for education and healing from the trauma associated with mass violence, ethnic cleansing and the legacy of colonialism. Participants will leave with ideas for tapping into their own communities’ traditional food ways to transform and organize their people.
