Creative Residencies: A Multi-Sensory Experience by Monique Carr
November 14, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free for walk-ins throughout the two hours.
Monique Carr is an observer, forager, and maker of shrubs- fermented syrups and wine in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her process involves being asked to pick fruits from properties where the fruit will otherwise go to waste and in doing so celebrating the richness of our harvest seasonally. With these fruits she makes cold-processed botanical syrups for soft drinks and cocktails. Her intention with this process is of storytelling, of capturing how symbiosis between flora and human, via fermentation, is synchronous to facilitating closeness between loved ones and community, elicited through memory, taste, and smell.
Creative Residencies (CRs) is a new SITE Santa Fe program that celebrates creative people doing extraordinary work in our community. CR participants present unexpected creative experiences at SITE Santa Fe.
