SAT May 25: Join CAGJ in our booth in the Kuleana Corridor!

Help with CAGJ Outreach at NW Folklife!

Folklife is stretching its wings to encompass many aspects of folk culture including Food Sovereignty, and has invited CAGJ to host a booth in the Kuelana Corridor, with other local food justice organizations and farms. We will raise awareness about the African Food Sovereignty movement’s concerns with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, located just across the street. We will also share our new Tshirts and food justice posters, and other information with the public. Please sign up for a shift today, or just plan to stop by!

Kuleana Corridor is a new addition to the Folklife Festival as we introduce this year’s Cultural Focus—Lagom: Not too much, not too little…just right! Kuleana is a Hawaiian term which loosely translates to “responsibility”, referring to a
reciprocal relationship between the person who is responsible, and the thing which they are responsible for. Assigning this term to this new component of the festival speaks to the accountability that all of us have to our environment and specifically the way evolve our food systems. Kuleana Corridor is located on the west side of McCaw Hall.
