Feed Me a Story is a collective that works on intergenerational projects focusing on the elderly and other communities that are underserved and overlooked by mainstream media. They are inspired by two of the oldest interactive experiences – eating and talking. The team has partnered with several arts and cultural institutions in New York City, launching events and performing at the Ellis Island National Historic Site, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Arts Center at Governors Island and Lentspace in Husdon Square, Brooklyn Museum, Museum of Chinese in America, the Museum at Eldridge Street, Children’s Museum of the Arts, the New Museum’s Ideas City Festival, the Asian American Arts Alliance’s Locating the Sacred Arts Festival, and as SPARC artists with the LaGuardia Senior Center. Feed Me a Story received funding from the New York State Council for the Arts, the National Endowment of the Arts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the Department of Cultural Affairs. PBS/POV selected Feed Me a Story to participate in two hackathons to develop our app.
