  Art, Community, Ecology, and Health: Brandi and Carlton Turner  
(Arts)

This presentation will occur online using Zoom. Please contact Bob Leonard at bob.leonard@vt.edu to register for this particularly timely and worthwhile public exchange.

The School of Performing Arts at Virginia Tech presents "Art, Community, Ecology, and Health," a series of talks/workshops by nationally recognized artists and thought leaders on the power and practice of art and culture as essential elements of healthy communities. These public presentations are meant to lead to open dialogue on the practical values of art as a core element for building strong communities.

Brandi and Carlton Turner will speak on using the arts and agriculture to support rural community, cultural, and economic development in their hometown, Utica, MS. They are leaders in a new research project that will investigate how creative approaches to community development may tackle the problem of access to healthy food in Utica, a low and moderate income, predominantly Black rural community in Mississippi. Their research project will consider how a more expansive imagination of future community wellbeing can change the narrative of what is possible and build collective community agency in the broader food access and healthy community development initiative.
