By cooking at home regularly, a family can afford healthier and more nutritious meals, and stretch the limited budget. My dream is to have a food van, which can prepare and offer many different cultures’ home style food at different places, particularly at economically disadvantaged area for free. By tasting unfamiliar food, we can physically experience different cultures (regardless within or outside the U.S.).
America is getting more segregated by income, culture, religion, and race. The upward mobility in the United States is in decline. When this social system is pulling the citizens further apart and pitting the disenfranchised against each other in order to maintain the wealth of fortunate few, the rest of us have to band together and arm each other with knowledge to survive and prosper in the future.
When many people can’t (or don’t) cross over to see “the other side”, the food van can bring “the other side” to them in order to satisfy the hunger of body and mind.
“POKETTO”, participatory public art installation - "If you could find anything you wished in a pocket what would it be? Write it. Draw it. Leave It in a pocket. Read what others said.”
BringPOCKETS from your precious old clothes! They could be added on the installation.

Hiromi asks people to stop for a short time and think about what is important to them and why. Participants may respond to the question by drawing, writing and/or creating small pieces of art work to leave in the pockets.
Both workshops will be flanked by our One Stop accommodations: A private and hygenic lactation space, a diaper changing and potette area, stroller parking, and a play space. We also provide smaller chairs for children to participate in workshops.
