Flux Thursday, June 10, 7pm-10pm
Fungal Symbiote Dinner & Musings by Gil Lopez

Participants will join the hosts for an evening discussing the fungal world at the intersection of human health and ingenuity. Discussion will include culinary mushroom cultivation, mycelium as a metaphor for radical social organizing and the stones ape theory. Dinner will include mushrooms grown by the artist.

Flux Thursday is a monthly community potluck and artist salon the second Thursday every month. It is Flux Factory’s longest running public program and we’re looking forward to hosting our first in-person Flux Thursday since the onset of the pandemic.

Gil is a community organizer who creates socially engaged performance art which connects human participants with the natural world which we are a part of. His work invites participants, particularly urban dwellers, to re-engage with our biophilic history, to continue the work of our ancestors in understanding and making meaning of our human potential to become allies with plants, animals, fungal entities and the mineral world. Gil is the cofounder of the urban farm collective Smiling Hogshead Ranch, serves on the Queens Solid Waste Advisory Board and works as an environmental educator and compost professional.
