The Umeå Pantry was a five-week long public art event held in Umeå, Sweden, aimed at making concerns about food production public and supporting local communities interested in food related practices.
The event consisted of a series of performances where participant communities were invited to a dialogue on food concerns and practices in the region. The performances took the form of communal activities such as food harvesting, cooking, workshops, debates and demonstrations.
The making of the art event highlights the practice of creating forms for engagement and participation of disparate communities around social issues.
In the broader picture, this project contributes to the understanding of community participatory design and design for social innovation.
