January 4-26, 2019 – The Lands We Share Traveling Exhibit: Wisconsin Farms Oral History Project

Johnson Creek Village Hall
125 Depot Street, Johnson Creek
Monday – Friday: 8am-4pm
Saturdays: 9am-noon

A collaboration of faculty and students at four UW campuses (UW-Whitewater, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Milwaukee, and UW-Madison), The Lands We Share initiative includes a traveling exhibition and public dialogue tour that focuses on the intersection of farming, land, ethnic culture, and history in Wisconsin. The exhibit will feature the stories, histories, artifacts, images and sounds of six culturally and regionally distinct farms and farm sites and invites visitors to share their own stories, insights and questions. The featured Johnson Creek farm is the Dettmann Dairy Farm.

Each stop on the tour will include a three-week run at a community-based venue near one of the six sites and a farm-to-table Community Conversation. The Johnson Creek Community Conversation will be held on Thursday, January 17th at 5:30 p.m. at the Johnson Creek Community Center. Reservations are required and information on reservations may be found at the Lands We Share Website.

The Lands We Share program aims to bring together people and groups from diverse backgrounds who are often separated despite living and working in close proximity. Tour organizers hope that participants will identify common interests and discuss shared community visions by drawing on shared personal or family experiences on the land, in farming or with food.
