A Traveling EXHIBIT and Community COnversation Tour curated by you
How Wisconsin Farming and History Have Shaped Who We Are
A collaboration of faculty and students at four UW campuses (UW-Whitewater, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Milwaukee, and UW-Madison), The Lands We Share initiative includes a traveling exhibition and public dialogue tour that focuses on the intersection of farming, land, ethnic culture, and history in Wisconsin. The exhibit features the stories, histories, artifacts, images and sounds of five culturally and regionally distinct farms and farm sites and invites visitors to share their own stories, insights and questions. Each stop on the tour includes a three-week run at a community-based venue near one of the five sites and a farm-to-table Community Conversation.
The Lands We Share program aims to bring together people and groups from diverse backgrounds who are often separated despite living and working in close proximity. We encourage participants to identify common interests and to discuss shared community visions by drawing on shared personal or family experiences on the land, in farming or with food.
