The Poppies is a part of Wyman’s Artist-in-Residency, A Feast of Communities, at the Red Poppy Art House. Over 2017, Wyman, in community with Zena Carlota and Shree Shyam Das, will be hosting otherworldly dinner parties that engage diverse communities in San Francisco—queers and gender rebels, born and bred Mission District residents, and international migrants who work at tech companies. The purpose of A Feast of Communities is to foster relationships, conjure magic, and share stories. Crystal Mason and Stella Adelman join Wyman, Carlota, and Das as co-hosts of individual dinners to ensure each one has its own flavor and aesthetic rooted in the communities identified by the core team.
A Feast of Communities is rooted in the Red Poppy Art House’s core practices of facilitating socially-engaged professional development, producing vigorous and multidisciplinary programming, playing matchmaker among friends and strangers, and honoring that which is slow. Another root comes from Wyman’s approach of cultivating circle-based models of creation and exchange that foster understanding, empathy, and complexity across age, identity, culture, and expression. Together, this unique residency will weave a tapestry of talents, traditions, and tales representing a community of communities.
As part of Wyman’s residency, the Red Poppy Art House has graciously provided their space for The Poppies, Pop-Up Shop, in-kind. This exchange of time and space cultivates equity through fostering deep relationships that provide a platform for earning income.
