Study Days

Making food for and with each other

Sat 13 March 2021
1.30-4.30pm

Center for Contemporary Art
Gateshead NE8 3BA

Join a free online event exploring localised food initiatives with Kathrin from Company Drinks. This will be an online space for conversation and connection, a chance to hear about localised food production, using Company Drinks as an example.

We will discuss economies involved in local food production and its connection with art practices. Together we will chat about our shared interest and practices, so we can decide collectively what we’d like to focus on to workshop and explore further. This event is intended to be social and informal so everyone is welcome. If you’re involved in an organisation that works with or produces food, own an allotment, like to grow herbs on your windowsill or just want to find out more about alternative ways of producing food, please come along to connect and share ideas. We’re keen to connect with those based in our region, North East England but very much welcome anyone, beyond our regional borders, interested in localised food production.

This event will take place online via Zoom. Places are limited therefore booking is essential.
