Tactile Anacostia is a gastro-art project that invites Anacostia and neighboring Ward 8 residents to come preserve their food stories with conceptual food artist Carmen C. Wong.
All Anacostia and neighboring Ward 8 residents are welcome to drop by during workshop hours to help craft locally-obtained produce into jams, pickles, sauces and ephemeral art. Come ready to tell and audio-record your favorite food stories and check in with your fellow Anacostia neighbors. Participants get to take home jars of these Anacostia-grown stories which they have collectively preserved.
Don’t live in Ward 8 but want to take part? We need volunteers at the workshops and you are warmly welcome to lend a hand.
