a new SPURSE project… eating as a tactic to claim and put into action our “right to change ourselves by changing the city” (Harvey, 2008: 23).
read the introduction to the project:
“Eat Your Sidewalk is an urban festival that challenges you and a community of like-minded participants to eat and live on what you find right under your feet for 7 days straight. The goal of this immersive event is to change our sense of food, the local and all that surrounds us (plants, food, materials, waste, kindness, communities, and our fellow critters). Imagine a mash up of the 100 mile diet, plus foraging skills, and commons thinking, all combined with a closeness to the occupy ethos, and the slow food movement, — plus a healthy dose of experimentation and the simple pleasure of eating and sharing!
////// NOTE ON TACTICS:
‘crowd funding’, that is – as we framed it during the making of citámbulos – building up a circle of friends and godparents that get involved with a project already during the process that leads up to it is also a tactic of public engagement.
