SWAP is a community-based, interactive, grow kit for open-pollinated seed and

resource sharing and for uplifting the Culture in agri-Culture through art and storytelling.

March 17 – 31, 2017

University of New Mexico

George Pearl Hall

Rainosek Gallery

Hours: M-F 8am – 5pm

Here is how you can participate:

• Drop-off your saved seeds to share, make sure these are open-pollinated and

labeled with type of seed and year collected.

• Pick up seeds. Please only take what you need, place in an envelope, label your

envelope and be sure to leave some for others. Also, grow these seeds out, save

some seeds, and next year share these with your neighbors.

• Post local seed and gardening info on the bulletin board to share with others.

• Take some time to sit down and draw out a Seed Story to post on the bulletin


• Listen to Seed Stories recorded by SeedBroadcast.

• Contact SeedBroadcast if you would like to record your own audio story.

We will also be showing documents from Seed Libraries around the country… what

would a Seed Library at UNM look like?

SeedBroadcast will be hosting SWAP in conjunction with the exhibition: Re|Source:

Unpacking the Archive.

SeedBroadcast is a collaborative project exploring bioregional agri-Culture and seed

action through collective inquiries and hands-on creative practices. SeedBroadcast holds

the belief that it is a human right to save seeds and share their gifts, to grow food and

share its abundance, and to cultivate grassroots wisdom and share its creativity. These

are the roots of agri-Culture to be broadcast. SeedBroadcast encourages communities to

keep agri-Culture alive and vibrant through working together in creative and inspiring

ways. Spending time with people on their farms and in their gardens, at seed exchanges

and community gatherings, SeedBroadcast digs deep into the oft-unheard stories of

local agri-Culture. Our work includes community-based projects, installations, dialogues,

creative actions, and cross-country tours with the Mobile Seed Story Broadcasting

Station. Interdisciplinary collaboration is a founding principal of SeedBroadcast activities

where cohorts from diverse backgrounds work together as critical partners of inquiry

and creative production.
