About the program:

Did you ever think that food scraps affords a massive opportunity to play, explore, and imagine? Inspiration is at your fingertips and in your hands when you take a second look at everyday food waste. Visual artist Kanika Gupta and cinematographer Amit Kehar explore the reusability of these items through a video piece that will introduce macro-photography as a means to create stories. The video will be followed by an in-person narrative workshop during the Ontario Culture Days Festival which will encourage participants to bring in their own food scraps to create characters and stories which will be added to an online gallery on the Ontario Culture Days website.
