Experience Around the Table

A new community-driven project at the intersection of art, food, and identity

Around the Table explores the intersection of food, art, and identity by creating a installations that embody the culinary diaspora and by hosting a series of community events in collaboration with local chefs to engage people with intertwining stories and cuisines. The installation will include custom-created tableware with community-gathered stories etched into the table and chairs. Around the Table will serve as a space to build community, elevate marginalized experiences, and enjoy good food.

Upcoming Events
 

Eating together around a table is where people pass-on stories with family and friends and share with and hear from new people from different backgrounds.
