Food Culture in Transnational Identities

14 March 2019
Kinning Park Complex

Free, registration required.

This seminar is part of the Race, Rights and Sovereignty series at The Glasgow School of Art. 
For more information, click here.

Throughout this full-day set of discussions and workshops, we will look at how food, food culture and heritage ingredients play a role in transnational identities. The event will take place at Kinning Park Complex, a community hub in the Southside of Glasgow. The day will begin with a discussion around notions of identity, and how food culture shapes, preserves or communicates these ideas, as well as getting to know the individual practitioners and how they negotiate these ideas through their various practices.

The initial introductory panels will be followed by a breakout into smaller workshops (advance sign-up required), where there will be an opportunity to explore these ideas further in hands-on workshops.

The day will culminate with a screening of the short film Saffron before the start of the regular Thursday Night Community Meal which takes place at Kinning Park Complex.

Panel includes: Gabby Cluness from Milk Café, artist Sulaïman Majali, Julie Lin MacLeod from Julie's Kopitiam and product designer Fernando Laposse

Participants will be more than welcome to stay for the Community Meal from 18:00 onwards and operates on a pay-what-you-want scheme. For more info click here.
