2018 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Farrah will train a group of after school students in South Philadelphia’s Furness High School in storytelling and media production. Over the course of 12 weeks, those students will work with VietLead’s OurRoots Youth Program to start a farm on school grounds, along with a recipe book. The project serves to document the farm building process, tell stories about the importance of seed saving, recipe sharing, and food as resistance and memory. The students will learn about collaborative media making, storyboarding, shooting and editing, and will produce 4-6 works that will be published online and screened at a showcase.
