Thanks to our guest contributor, Michael, of Daylight Magazine, a non-profit focusing on using art to highlight issues of social importance. Michael is here to tell us of an exciting new initiative based in North Carolina that promotes local food, local community, and local fellowship! Welcome, Michael!
Founded in 2003, Daylight is dedicated to using art and photography to highlight issues of social importance via our book, magazine, and multimedia publishing programs. By exploring the documentary mode along with the more conceptual concerns of fine-art, Daylight’s uniquely collectible publications work to revitalize the relationship between art, photography, and the world-at-large.
With the recent opening of Daylight’s Project Space in historic Hillsborough, NC, we have begun to program a selection of community-oriented events. The first of which is called the Single Source Supper series and is scheduled to begin later this month. For the Single Source Suppers James Beard nominated Panciuto Chef-Owner Aaron Vandemark will prepare a menu highlighting a single farm in the Triangle area.
Our inaugural event, on Wednesday, April 18th, will celebrate the launch of the Daylight Project Space in downtown Hillsborough, NC. The night’s events will feature food grown and raised by John Soehner and Cindy Econopouly of Eco Farm, local beer and wine, live music by The Hammond Eggs, a series of short film screenings and the quintessential buttered popcorn. We’ll have chairs, but bring a blanket for the movie if you prefer the grass.
The menu is a work in progress, but John anticipates having yellow squash, cucumbers, kales, chard, collards, arugula, turnips, radishes, lettuces, strawberries and pork.
So come sit outside with your neighbors, enjoy some delicious food, great music, watch a movie and help support a local non-profit arts organization dedicated to using photography to highlight issues of social importance. We only have room to host 50 people and we expect to sell out tickets quickly so sign up today!
