The coop created for the Story of Chickens: A Revolution, was initially intended to house five chickens. The purpose of this was to create a venue for closer engagement between humans and animals in the urban environment. Due to conflicts with the city code, the coop will travel empty and will serve as a meeting place to share stories pertaining to caring for animals and the relationship we have with the food we eat.
The coop will travel to the following two locations in the month of April!
April 9th East South Park 12pm – 6pm
April 16th East South Park 12pm – 6pm.
Come on out to see the coop in public spaces and feel free to share your stories with us. Nicholas Ward will be present to photo/film and record stories with willing participants.
