SAFE, the Society for Agriculture and Food Ecology is a group initiated by students at UC Berkeley who catalyze honest discussion of a truly sustainable food system.

Through panels, speakers, events and workshops they bring this discussion onto their campus with the intention of being inclusive, productive and impassioned on behalf of thier common goals of agricultural sustainability, ecological integrity, healthful human nutrition and vibrant rural economies.

"We feel strongly that this discourse is a critical element in the formation of policy goals, urban consumer literacy, and the shaping of food science. We also hope to embolden those interested in food/farming to make a career in these fertile fields."

They have also organized The Local a market stand featuring fresh local produce on UC Berkeley Campus once a week.

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
