The Wheat: Collective Nutrition Workshop
This workshop has the objective to explore the relation on collective work, creation, auto-edition and diffusion of a publication/photo-book. The subject we are going to work on is dedicated to Wheat. Our guideline is going to be the entire wheat cycle. The process of preparing the earth to planting the seeds until it reaches our tables: seeds, cropping, harvesting, transformation and consume elaboration.
To participate on the workshop you need to send a motivational letter and a 30 images proposal which you are going to work with. These images should come from print material related to wheat. For that you can prepare a personal photographic series, photocopies or scans of already existing images.
This workshop has a duration of one year that is gonna be divided on 4 working modules of the wheat cycle. We propose an intensive weekend workshops, starting on Friday afternoon from 19:00 to 21:00, Saturdays from 10:00 to 20:00 and Sundays from 10:00 to 18:00. The dates of the session are in coherence with the wheat cycle: seeding, cropping and harvesting.
