Active Cultures

About Us

Active Cultures is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the artistic exploration of our global foodways—the attitudes, practices, and rituals around what we consume. Foodways provide a window onto our most fundamental beliefs about cultural expression, equity, environmental sustainability, and ourselves.

We believe that by nurturing vital collaborations between artists, chefs, food practitioners, and their communities, we can illuminate global foodways and feed experimental artistic practice simultaneously, to build stronger connections of empathy, curiosity, and care among us all.
