OS Fermentation Workshop
OS Fermentation is a slow-cooking class, a healing ritual, and a spiritual revival of interspecies collaborations and new networks of open-source micro-practices. It is part of EcoArtTech’s new series of social sculptures, titled “EdibleEcologies,” working collaboratively with local communities (human, bacterial and ecological) to resuscitate historic food practices and facilitate recovery from a cultural memory disorder that we call “industrial amnesia.”
The workshops will take place Nov. 13-15, with a special dinner with the fermented vegetables to be held Dec. 6.
Nov. 13: 6-9:30 p.m., Smith Hall 220
Nov. 14: 11 a.m.-4 p.m., 202 McNaughton Hall, Falk Complex
Nov. 15: 6-9:30 p.m., Smith Hall 220
Dec. 6: 6-9 p.m., Smith Hall 220 (Dinner)
Participants in the workshop will learn hands-on skills for fermentation in a working demonstration. Participants will also connect the act of fermentation to broader themes of ecology, cultural production and activism through readings and discussions led by EcoArtTech and Syracuse University professors Evan Weissman and Edward Morris. All participants will take home jars of fermenting vegetables and be their custodian for a month. A dinner will be held in Dec. with the fermented vegetables.
The OS Fermentation Workshop is a one-credit class. Register with Add Form: Class number 30239. However, it is not compulsory to take the workshop for one-credit, you can take part of the workshop without adding an additional credit.
