ABOUT GRAND UNION

This dinner will form part of Grand Union’s 10th anniversary through a series of public dinners, exploring the lived experiences, personal histories and food cultures within Birmingham. Using ‘the kitchen’ and ‘dining table’ to activate encounters through food as material, it will examine how community food production and consumption can articulate the politics of collective care within a neighbourhood. These dinners will harness tacit knowledge, collaborative learning and social exchange through community growing, co-operative cooking and communal feasting.
