TMY’s Culture Kitchen showcases the connections between food and culture front and center, offering talks, demonstrations, tastings, and recipe-sharing. This year we celebrate the passing on of culinary traditions through families and community. Demonstrations will showcase the transfer of food knowledge across generations.
Also visit the inaugural Food Justice Expo, a partnership between Tucson City of Gastronomy and Southwest Folklife Alliance. Grassroots organizations, food businesses, and nonprofits from across Southern Arizona will share how their work strives for a more equitable and sustainable food economy through interactive displays and demonstrations.
This area also features the Food Tradition Stories Documentation Tent, a mobile studio gathering footage and interviews with festival attendees, vendors, and exhibitors, facilitated by Creative Tucson, a community media center offering services and classes in the media arts.
Coordinators: Nelda Ruiz, Southwest Folklife Alliance & Erik Stanford, Tucson City of Gastronomy
