Launched in 2021, Forge Project is an initiative to support leaders in culture, education, food security, and land justice. Forge exists as a platform for people and organizations whose crucial work serves the social and cultural landscape of our shared communities through a fellowship program, a teaching farm developed in partnership with Sky High Farm, community support, and a lending art collection. Forge Project's inaugural fellowship program launches this month with a cohort of four. On this episode of Tech Bites, host Jennifer Leuzzi talks with Heather Bruegl (Oneida / Stockbridge-Munsee), a historian, lecturer, and director of the Forge Project Fellowship and Forge Project Fellow Jasmine Neosh (Menominee), who is working on a field guide to restore knowledge loss surrounding food systems and native plants. Located in Upstate New York, on unceded, traditional, and ancestral lands of the Muh- he-con-ne-ok, Forge Project operates out of a building designed by artist and activist Ai Weiwei. The resources of Forge support organizations in the Hudson Valley, and Indigenous peoples who were displaced by settler colonialism.
