Cornerstone Theater Company’s Artist at the Table series begins Nov. 7

Echo Park Time Bank organizational member Cornerstone Theater Company is launching The Hunger Cycle, their multi-year exploration of hunger, justice and food equity issues, with "Creative Seeds: An Exploration of Hunger." This two-week event across Los Angeles opens on Monday, Nov. 7, with Artists at the Table, with guest and ensemble artists in conversation with some of the region’s most prominent food experts and thought leaders.

"Artists at the Table" events are FREE. Seating is limited and RSVPing is highly recommended. Please note, too, that they are hosting a food drive throughout the two weeks, by collecting non-perishable food items at all the events, so remember to bring something with you!
