2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Debbie Rudman will create City Harvest: The Next Decade, a documentary that those concerned with food insecurity and disenfranchisement can relate to. After spending 10 years as a grower in an expanding network of community organizations, gardens, neighborhood food cupboards, and the prison greenhouse re-entry program, Debbie will further support this local initiative, beginning in her own backyard. To emphasize personal relationships that the participants have with nature in this urban environment, Debbie will use observational style and a steady handheld camera. City Harvest will demonstrate hard work, collaboration and mutual support through individual interviews with other growers and community organizers.
