Share the flavours of ‘home’ and the memories they bring to life.
Join Goldsmiths researchers and community groups for a bake sale with a difference. Taste bakes from Lewisham’s diverse communities, explore the hidden histories behind iconic recipes and share the memories they evoke.
Designer, lecturer and avid baker Rose Sinclair, will kick off proceedings by discussing how she uses Caribbean cakes to spark conversations in her Caribbean front room textile installations.
Next, Sociologist Dr Alex Rhys-Taylor will give a short talk on food and multicultural London, using the mango to explore how our senses help us navigate and carve out a sense of belonging in the city.
Cakes are free, but with a suggested donation of £1 to support the Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network and local causes. All donations will receive a booklet bringing together the featured recipes and the stories behind them.
Alongside delicious bakes from around the world, people of all ages and backgrounds are invited to share their audio stories of arrival in London with The Conversation Booth - A mobile recording facility encouraging conversation, listening and archiving. Designed by Goldsmiths MA student, Nicole Robson, it’s part of the Mayor of London’s ‘Arrival’ work, ‘Celebrating Windrush and the Communities who followed’.
We are also partnering with local organisation Peace of Cake, 'Connecting Communities through Cake and Conversation' Find out more about their work: http://www.peaceofcaketogether.org
