This year, DIMES hosted a fundraiser to rewrite Thanksgiving. Seven Indigenous chefs from across the country prepared a dinner based on traditional recipes, using ingredients harvested from their lands. While preparing the meal, we began to get to know the chefs, and, in conversations during that week and in the months that followed, we began to hear more about the severe water restrictions that plague their home communities. In many instances, families with limited access to running water live off of weekly deliveries, allotting as little as seven gallons a day, with which to drink, cook, clean, and bathe. (The average person in the US uses a hundred!) With our dinner, we hope to raise funds to bring hot and cold clean running water to families on the Navajo Nation.
Dinner will be prepared by NY Chefs Melia Marden, Alissa Wagner, Kiki Kudo and Gerardo Gonzalez. Each course will be served on editioned objects created by each artist.
The evening will be intimate, with thirty-eight guests and dinner served by several of the artists. All proceeds will go toward the construction of the well, get your tickets now.
Thank you for your support.
