Event description

Description

A free screening of Six Primrose, the story of the Dartmouth North Community Food Centre by Truefaux Films. The event is being hosted by the St.F.X. Department of Human Nutrition and the Antigonish Food Security Association. Free snacks and refreshments will be provided. All are welcome!

For years, the neighbourhood of Dartmouth North has struggled with high rates of food insecurity and isolation. In 2014, the community rallied to build a vibrant Community Food Centre where people come together to grow, cook, share, and advocate for good food for all.

Filmmakers John Hills and Hannah Minzloff of Truefaux Films were there to capture the changes that ensued: a parking lot transforms into a community garden, an empty building fills with the smells and sounds of people making food together, strangers turn into friends, and together, residents start to push for change.

Through the powerful stories of Amanda, Jessica, Charlie, Oras, and Ken, community members who are all struggling in different ways when they walk through the doors of the Dartmouth North Community Food Centre, we see how vibrant spaces and programs can change people’s lives, and contribute to healthier and more equitable communities.

Join us after the screening for a discussion featuring Debbie Dickey, Executive Director of the Centre.

Six Primrose was created by Truefaux Films.
