Nourishing our humanity: health beyond our selves and our bodies
A Talk by Monwabisi Lubabalo Dyantyi
The Warehouse Trust / Izenzo
About this talk
As humans, we are more than our bodies, we are thoughtful, creative, social and spiritual beings. We also live connected to families, communities, cultures and societies. And it is food that we have in common across these various aspects of our lives. We eat for pleasure, to honour our culture, to celebrate, to affirm our connections with one another and with things greater than our own existence. How does the breakdown of nourishment during the COVID-19 pandemic illuminate the role of food, and how the way we have come to eat has shaped the way we connect - or don't - with the fullness of our humanity?<hr>
