The series central theme is how food is both a political act, as through eating we are supporting different systems, and a cultural act, which can both reaffirm one’s own identity, but also assist us to see other’s worldviews. Each event will feature two components: a hands-on workshop, where participants will work with the artist to make a food product, and a discussion, where participants will have a larger conversation about food while sampling the food from the workshop. -- Oaklands Community Centre is on a ground-level floor, with no stairs throughout the building.
