A Celebration for Resilience
The Knowledge Exchange for Resilience is excited to invite you to join us at ASU Gammage on November 8th, 2023 for our annual event celebrating this year's cohort of Resilience Fellows and Scholars. Acclaimed chef and food justice advocate Chef José Andrés will discuss the importance of promoting community resilience through food security with the help of comedian, performance artist, and Gammage Artist in Residence Kristina Wong. The evening's topics will center around how we can help create more sustainable and resilient communities. Chef Andrés, who is a strong advocate for using food to address social justice issues, will share his insights on how to create more equitable access to fresh, healthy food in urban areas. "We're thrilled to have Chef Andrés join us for this event," said Dr. Elizabeth Wentz, Director of KER. "His work with World Central Kitchen has shown us how food can be used as a tool for positive change. We hope that his message will inspire people to take action in their own communities and promote urban agriculture initiatives." The event will be emceed by the hilarious and highly decorated performance artist, comedian, actor, and writer Kristina Wong - who is currently ASU Gammage's Artist in Residence. Tickets start at $25. We expect this event will sell out, so please get your tickets early!
