Who We Are
Farm Together Now People:
- Amy Franceschini is an artist and designer living in San Francisco, California. An overarching theme in her work is a perceived conflict between humans and nature. She creates work in various media that provide platforms to question this divide. Drawing inspiration from the improvisation, innovation and collaboration that emerges from the choreographed activities of farming both big and small, her work often provides a playful entry point and tools for an audience to gain insight into a deeper field of inquiry – not only to imagine, but to participate in and initiate change in the places we live. In 1995, Franceschini founded Futurefarmers, an international collective of artists and designers that come together to make work that is relevant to the time and space surrounding them.

- Daniel Tucker works as an organizer and documentary maker with a focus primarily on places and the cultural and social movements that define them. From 2005 to 2010 he edited the biannual journal and discussion series AREA Chicago, releasing ten readers on themes related to culture and politics in Chicago. His conferences, classes, exhibitions, protests, writings, and lectures about the intersections of culture and politics have been seen throughout the United States and Europe. When not working on projects he roasts fair-trade coffee on a grill in his alley, lives, and eats in the northwest side of Chicago with his companion Lauren. You can visit him at Miscprojects.com.
