NeoRio 2013: The Ice Cream Olympics – Intimate Ecologies: Tastes of the Monument
This year’s NeoRio is a 3 month artist’s residency – the first in the newly designated Rio Grande Del Norte Monument and is a series of workshops, educational activities and an exhibition, raising the profile of the final event The Ice Cream Olympics.
The Ice Cream Olympics is an inclusive accessible field day with the sole aim of churning ice cream from local ingredients and to create local flavours playfully exploring bio-cultural diversity one scoop at a time.
