New EventLearning Series | The Impact of Food Apartheid in Education, Part 4

Throughout the year, the MCA hosts high-quality professional development programming, open to teachers of all subjects, grade levels, and disciplines. These events are educator-specific, skills-based, training on contemporary art integration. Programs are designed in connection with the cultural assets of the MCA and the needs of the Chicago area educators. In keeping with addressing issues of relevance, the 2023-24 Learning Series is a four-part series exploring on “The Impact of Food Apartheid in Education”.

The term “apartheid” is used as it acknowledges the existence of economic and racial segregation systems. And as history has shown us, apartheid systems can be dismantled through collective action.

In the final Learning Series, join Alexy Irving, Alexandra Antoine, and Taryn Randle as they discuss the importance of garden education in school and out of school. The benefits of having a school garden are insurmountable and very much possible for every school. We’ll discuss how to tie gardening with art, how a successful school garden can lead to healthier eating, mindfulness, entrepreneurship and community togetherness, and we’ll share some hands-on activities you can do with your students.

As the culminating session of our four-part series addressing the impact of Food Apartheid in Education, we hope to provide educators with an introduction to some of the numerous ways gardening programs combine arts, civic action, and agriculture in communities across the city.

ASL is available upon request.
