  • 3. The Background Once upon a time . . .Friday, 25 May 2012
  • 4. . . . in 1981, while foraging for wild foods that he sold to chefs in the city, artist Whitney Smith came up with the idea of ‘wild culture’. Hmmm . . . fiddlehead ferns on a restaurant plate? wild groceries + chef cuisine = wild cultureFriday, 25 May 2012
  • 5. Whitney discovered his artist friends were intrigued by his enterprise, and his produce. He turned their curiosity into a piece of performance art. After the first performance, he knew he had something to sink his teeth into (so to speak). It was about Earth and Art, but also ideas and fun.Friday, 25 May 2012

  • 7. The Ryerson Review of Journalism called it "quirky and innovative . . . The inability to pin down the idea is what makes it attractive, along with its l approach to presenting serious themes with a sense of plan and timeliness." The Globe & Mail explained the ). u magazine’s effect: "There is a bridge between history and landscape. To get people to change their view of the LJ E environment, you can’t just argue in economic terms. It’s an emotional thing. People act politically when they get emotionally involved.” uilFriday, 25 May 2012

  • 47. Why contribute to The Journal of Wild Culture? • We’re working hard to create an online channel that looks good, inspires users and gets a lot of attention for its contributors. • Our editors work with you to make your work as good as it can be. If people respond well to your work, the community voting system, like Reddit, will bring it to the fore. • All your work is archived and forever available. • Each contributor has a profile page designed to: — connect them to like-minded collaborators and increase their participation in the community — promote their work, whatever it is, and enhance their livelihood by letting others know what they have to offer. If your livelihood is not increased by your participation with Wild Culture, we want to know about it. Unleashing creativity for the common and individual good is our goal. • ‘Most loved pieces’ are featured in the regularly published Journal of Wild Culture downloadable magazine and the Wild Culture Annum, a book. Both pay royalties. • The Wild Culture Community Fund supports proposed local projects that are pitched by our members and voted on by contributors and fund donors.Friday, 25 May 2012

  • 49. Finally . . . To be truly creative means not being afraid to take chances and to work in open and collaborative ways — even with yourself — where playfulness and intellectual substance do a strong dance. We sometimes forget that passion for creation, recreation and fertility are non-human and human characteristics, and that planet and people are not as separated and at odds as sometimes occurs in everyday life. Bridging that gap is in itself a profoundly creative act, and it’s a task that the editors of Wild Culture want to address, among many other things. It’s a beautiful journey, trying to get at these understandings that the human mind is often reluctant to pursue. The Twelve Spies Showing the Fertility of Canaan.Friday, 25 May 2012
