Manchester Jewish Museum Potluck Supper
June 20, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
This is the first in a series of events I will be hosting together with Manchester Jewish Museum as their first ‘food artist in residence’. For the next few months, I will be working with the museum’s staff, volunteers, stakeholders and visitors to develop a participatory programme of activity related to food.
Using diverse examples of Jewish food as a starting point, we will explore cultural food connections related to the theme of belonging. Food will be considered as a traveller and migrant in terms of how certain foods and recipes arrived in Manchester and the roles they played within the Jewish communities. We are interested in exploring food as cultural identity, food as art and food as a means of bringing people together.
We are beginning to shape some ideas about what having a ‘food artist’ lead part of the museum’s programme might mean, and what kind of activities this might lead us to undertake. This event will feature a communal dinner cooked from ingredients brought along by our guests.
