 PAST EVENTS

Over the last decade we at SPURSE have been working across the globe to rethink urban ecosystems, develop practices of urban foraging, initiate a "sidewalk to table" slow-food movement and build multi-species commons as a new form of place-making. Here are some of things we have been up to:

We have been working with Mary Miss and the City as Living Laboratory project for a number of years.  Here is an overview of our of our urban foraging and urban ecosystem reimaging walks. More information here and a video.

SPURSE developed an urban foraging landscape with Pitzer College. Here is our campus urban foraging guide and interactive map.

On Multi-species making and unmaking -- We were part of a project with Aarhus University Research on the Antropocene (AURA) and Kunsthall Aarhus. Here is the workshop program.

In which we come to know that the greater part of the stomach lies outside the body. An urban foraging and urban ecology project we did with the Women's Studio Workshop
