The Creative Food Research Collaboratory

The Creative Food Research Collaboratory germinates collaborations at the intersection of art and food studies, exploring how the arts can imagine—and therefore help to achieve—food security, food sovereignty, and food justice in Canada.  
Co-initiated in 2022 by Dr. Amanda White and Dr. Zoë Heyn-Jones with Research Associates Anahí González and Katie Lawson, we are currently based at the Center for Sustainable Curating at Western University (London, Canada). Foregrounding collaboration as methodology, we seeks to cultivate networks and structures that will allow collaborative artistic practices and knowledge mobilization strategies around food issues to take root and flourish.
Our work includes academic research, public events, teaching and workshops, as well as fundraising for community food initiatives.


Our work is supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
