Hosted by Evolver and the Baltimore Free Farm, the 2013 Mushroom City Arts day will be an interactive exploration of the Mushroom as an organism: focusing on its impact on our ourselves and our environment. Discussions, art, music, film, workshops and walking tours will reveal the many real-world applications for mushroom cultivation in contemporary urban life. Why Mushroom City Arts? The mushroom, often portrayed only as a food product, plays a remarkable role in developing and sustaining environmental stability. Mycelium, the underground root-like network of mushrooms, plays a critical role in maintaining healthy soil, by absorbing and processing toxins, heavy metals, and even synthetic substances such as plastic or diesel fuel, and converting them into useful organic nutrients. Mycelium, like neurons or the branching of tree limbs shows us how interconnected structures exist on multiple levels of life. It's in learning how interconnected systems function and in how we might utilize and mimic them that we see opportunities for growing and engaging the next world. In our 21st century world, where our traditional methods of production, consumption, and interaction with the environment break down a little more each day, we can afford to widen our perspective and learn from the living things around us. Through Mushroom City Arts, we hope to educate ourselves and one another by exploring both the practical and the intuitive intricacies of the mushroom. We hope you come and learn how this life form can inspire us, and help us move forward into a sustainable future. flier design by: Will Shanklin Brian Richards from the States of Consciousness Research Projects at JHU will be presenting on JHU's psilocybin research Jeff Arber and Ian Stenzel from Maryland Mycology L.L.C. will be hosting a community discussion on mycoremediation.
