Eat the Archives: Museums and Food
July 29, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
For over two years, theatre-chef Leo Burtin has taken up residence in Manchester Jewish Museum’s archives, finding ways to bringing our collection to life by cooking and sharing food. Through Eat the Archives, we have worked with diverse communities and participants to host community feasts, hold online and in-person events, produce films and share stories in a myriad of ways.
We would like to invite you to join us at the museum for our Knowledge Sharing Day. We will be exploring what we have learned from our experiments investigating the relationship between food, museums, audience engagement and artistic practice, and facilitating conversations about how food can become a core part of your creative practice or programme.
This all-day event will be an opportunity for artists, programmers, museum teams, creative facilitators and cultural practitioners to explore how they can integrate food practices into their work. It will also be an opportunity for those interested in food to consider how they might engage with cultural organisations.
The day will feature presentations, practical workshop activities, film screenings and of course, plenty of food!
Following the event at 5.30pm there will be a public book launch of Leo’s book ‘With Bread’ including a foreword from our Creative Producer Dr. Laura Seddon. Tickets for the sharing day include the evening book launch.
Full schedule to be announced and a vegetarian lunch will be provided for all.
