Event description

Description

Food is a symbolic marker of identity and community. Food is also a subject of appropriation, and a space of constant conflict of who has the authoritative voice. This workshop aims to reimagine food as racialized disaporic subjects, looking at the dislocatedness, multiplicities, hybridities. What is your “comfort food”? How does your diasporic identit(ies) influence your notion of staple food in your culture? How does food act as a symbol of warmth, community, or resistance? How do we reclaim our “food” in midst of rapid fusion trends and food appropriation in the city?

This 2-part Talkerative will be a collaborative D.I.Y zine-making workshop, which will involve ideating personal narratives and experiences through collaging and drawing.

  • August 17th: Focus around looking at food trends around the city, and how food making is influenced by geographic location.
  • August 24th: Focus around deconstructing and reimagining our favourite dishes from various recipes, including the typical, the self-proclaimed authoritative, the family and/or the community tradition

Both sessions will work towards creating one large collaborative zine (not one per session). Each participant will learn how to stab stitch their copy of the zine (the collab zine will be scanned and printed on the spot). The zine will also be digitally archived and shown at LooseLeaf Vol.4 launch.

Only 5 spots available per session!

Tickets for both sessions are available for sale, however, you are more than welcome to attend one workshop. For the price of the ticket, you will receive a free tea drink order of your choice at Crimson Teas!
