I'm traveling to Davis, CA tomorrow for an exciting engagement with HATCH, a UC Davis Feminist Arts and Science Shop. From their website:
Our initiative draws on the European model of science shops that provide space for communities to participate in the creation of scientific and technological research agendas. We build upon this work by including the arts and specifically orienting our research agendas towards social justice ends. The UCD Feminist Arts & Science Shop will encourage the development of new science-making and artistic and humanistic modes of inquiry by providing a designated platform to co-create new ways of thinking about democracy and knowledge making in a community-engaged way.
My good friend Stephanie Maroney, of the Radical Mycology Working Group at UC Davis, has also invited me to facilitate a fermentation workshop with them at the Yolo County Public Library.
