‘Small Gathering for Big Thoughts’ is an invitation to bring your own ingredients, meet a stranger and cook together without a recipe. It explores ideas of how we can come together with our differences and co -create new possibilities.
A sense of humanity in continuous movement and transformation comes alive through the alchemy of cooking together. In this arena, where personal and intimate moments are shared, we can travel across the world through imagination and come together to reveal their interconnectedness to the world.
The exhibition wants to make visible to a wider audience a year (the project started in July 2015) of gatherings and exchanging ideas over food.
Through the display of collected documentation the public will be able to get an insight of the journey people have shared during the process of cooking together and contribute to the installation with their thoughts and experiences in relation to food.
The project has been selected now by the Royal Society of Arts for the London CrowPatch campaign. The money will help me to spend three months of working closely with experts in wellbeing, food politics and decision-making processes and devise sessions for organisations and groups that are looking at issues of difference and integration.
It would be great if you could contribute, volunteer with your skills or share the link with your contacts.
