Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art

As a part of Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light, Jennifer Wen Ma has conceived of a series of Luncheons in the Garden in which the public will be invited to be a part of conversations dealing with themes of the exhibition.

Bring a bag lunch and break bread with other members of the community in the Halsey Institute galleries. Each Luncheon in the Garden will also feature a collaborative performance by musician, dancer, or poet relating to the theme. For this Luncheon, the artist will be discussing issues of food justice facing the Lowcountry.

Under the fruit-laden vines of the Gardens, this paradise is a perfect place to partake in food and drink while discussing food quality, nutritional value, safety, availability, access, and some of the humanitarian and environmental aspects of “putting food on the table.”

Join Ideas Into Action and the Halsey Institute on Wednesday, July 10, 6:00-7:30 pm as we explore four topics of concern in Charleston that have something in common: systemic racism as a root cause.

Over the month of June and into early July, we are holding four dinners at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in conjunction with its current exhibit CRY JOY PARK—GARDENS OF DARK AND LIGHT by artist Jennifer Wen Ma. Inspired by the history of Charleston, Jennifer’s installation dramatically explores the juxtaposition between paradise and oppression. Each dinner focuses on a single area of concern: education, food access, land & affordable housing issues, and reentry from prison into society. Jennifer worked closely with Jessica Boylston of Ideas Into Action to develop the dinner themes and guest list, which include members of Charleston working on these issues.

Now we want to open the conversation to all and share what we have learned!

Tina Singleton, social justice coordinator for YWCA Greater Charleston and coordinator of its frequently sold-out Racial Equity Institute training workshops, will start us off with some eye-opening racial equity concepts and surprising stats from the Avery Institute’s disparity report. Other panelists will include guests from each of the four dinners, who will fill us in on the social justice discussions at each one:

  • EDUCATION: LaTisha Vaughn, Director of Networks and Community Engagement, Tricounty Cradle to Career
  • LAND & AFFORDABLE HOUSING: TBD
  • REENTRY FROM PRISON: Scarlett Wilson, Solicitor of Ninth Circuit Solicitor’s Office
  • FOOD JUSTICE: TBD

Come be a part of Charleston’s conversation and change in this critical area of need!

RECOMMENDATION: We highly recommend visiting the Halsey’s special CRY JOY PARK—GARDENS OF DARK AND LIGHT exhibition prior to attending our session. It will be available for free viewing until July 6. A paper garden installation by acclaimed artist Jennifer Wen Ma, who served as chief designer of visual and special effects at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, it explores a yin/yang balance between utopias and dystopias.

PARKING: Parking is available in garages located at 81 St. Philip Street and 34 St. Philip Street

A special thanks to the representatives from the following organizations for their hard work and attending the themed dinners:

Education: Kids On Point, Yo Art!, Charleston Hope, Tricounty Cradle to Career, Charleston County School Board, and Mitchell Elementary
