22nd December 2020 – FAR Network
November saw Custom’s curatorial director Madeleine Collie and creative director Cherry Truluck reconvene the newly named Food Art Research (FAR) network (first hosted in August). The network includes members from India, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK. This feels like a very special thing emerging – there is an urgency for connectivity and solidarity, as well as a clear shared sense of the value of collective action. Over the coming year we look forward to the network working with the University of Kent‘s Centre for Biocultural Diversity, Seed Sovereignty, GALA and more.
