Feast on the Street
Feast on the Street was a massive urban harvest festival bringing communities together to celebrate food in the desert around a dining table that is one-half-mile in length. The free, public event included food, performance, art, participatory activities, music and more. Through this public space reinvented by artists and the arts, Feast on the Street contributed to a vision for living together in a time of local and global change. Feast on the Street was inspired by the work of artist Clare Patey (London, England). Patey’s work explores participation, cultivation, food, conversation, celebration and cultural responses to climate change. She was an early participant in the Tipping Point conferences exploring climate change between the scientific and artistic communities at the Environmental Change Institute at Oxford University.
