“Food & Faith: Mennonites Farming Locally and Globally”


Mennonite sociologist Winfield Fretz called farming the ‘sacred vocation.’ Even though fewer and fewer Mennonites are involved in it, we are all dependent on, if not blessed by it. We used to talk together about farming and faith a lot more when more of us were farmers. Maybe it’s time to talk again.

This installation provides a tangible response to one of our culture's most pervasive rape myths.

Outfits featured have been recreated from the stories of student-survivors. If only ending sexual violence was as easy as changing our clothes, instead it requires all of us to evaluate what enabled us as individuals and as a society to ask, "what were you wearing?" in the first place.

This installation is a part of Consent Week 2020 and presented in partnership with the Sexual Assault Support Centre.
