PLAYING WITH FOOD: EATING OUR WORK
“food can serve as an example of the need to rethink our ideas about what constitutes art, how we assign value, and how we form a division between art and life, and between artistic medium and craft” -Yael Raviv “Eating My Words” (9)

This ten day residency will bring together artists looking at the ceremony, ritual and artistry around food and eating together. Opening up a conversation about breaking bread as performance and food as art, we can potentially open up larger conversation around human consumption, community development and what constitutes art. What history and culture might be found in the way a dish is prepared, what personal narratives lie dormant in your grandmother’s cookie recipe? Looking at the connection between what we eat and the lives we live, we invite proposals from artists working in multiple art mediums, including (but not limited to) film, visual arts, literature and performance.


MISSION
Cucalorus brings people together to celebrate, discover and create independent films. The annual festival provides a non-competitive environment to showcase and support filmmakers.

THE FOUNDATION
Cucalorus is a multi-disciplinary arts organization supporting emerging and innovative creative professionals through our annual film festival, a residency program, a summer camp for teen filmmakers, a microcinema, and an extensive community outreach program. The annual Cucalorus Film Festival was established in 1994 and has since grown into one of the largest film festivals in the South. More than 250 films screen each year at venues all over downtown Wilmington, attracting a large number of participating artists (300+) and thousands of fans and industry professionals (accumulated attendance in 2014 was 15,743). Festival programs focus on dance, music videos, emerging artists, social justice, works-in-progress, and international cinema. Cucalorus education and outreach programs include Global Perspectives, Works-in-Progress, Latino Lens, Media Literacy, and Racial Rewind. Cucalorus was "Voted One of MovieMaker Magazine's Coolest Film Festivals in the World, 2014."

RESIDENCIES
Residencies are open to a wide range of creative professionals. Cucalorus staff will conduct Skype interviews with qualified applicants to discuss project ideas and needs. Space is not currently wheelchair accessible.

THE COMPOUND
Cucalorus world headquarters are located at Jengo’s Playhouse, which is one of six buildings that make up a creative village in downtown Wilmington with living space, studio space and outer space. The facilities include: Wabi Sabi Warehouse, Jengo's Playhouse, PinkHouse, Yolohaus, the Nutthouse and the Cottage. Resident artists will live at the PinkHouse, Yolohaus, and/or the Cottage and will have access to studio space at Jengo's Playhouse and/or Wabi Sabi Warehouse. The neighborhood is just 8 blocks from the core of Wilmington’s historic riverfront business district – with tons of restaurants, bars, clubs and shops.
