TOUCHSTONE COLLABORATIONS

Miche Fabre Lewin and Flora Gathorne-Hardy are co-founders of Touchstones, a ecological and socially-engaged and arts practice dedicated to transformative pedagogy and trans-epistemic research within the fields of food, soil and agroecology. Our focus is to create inclusive and convivial environments where people can engage with issues of social and ecological justice through artful processes. Between us we have over 30 years of experience in arts-based research facilitating experiential courses and workshops focussed on inter-cultural dialogue and healing. Our writings appear in arts, therapy and design journals, academic publications, practitioner guides, and policy reports. We are both Research Associates at Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience (CAWR), Coventry University, UK. In 2014 Miche was awarded a doctoral scholarship by CAWR to reflect upon her food ritual practice. These convivial food happenings make visible the connections between the health of the body, the well-being of communities and the regenerative practices for the living Earth. In 2015 we were awarded a special commendation for our ecological artist collaboration by the CIWEM/CCANW Nick Reeves AWEinspiring Award for Arts, Water and the Environment.
