Art Exhibition - Light House Media Centre: history of bread from the UK, through Europe to the Middle East which is a 14-000, year period of humans sharing knowledge of the land. Local Artists and children in the fair- trade movement of Wolverhampton.
Outreach groups of volunteers sharing with the public, bread donated by local bakeries while asking people how they imagine the future of the UK. The volunteers will direct the public to the art exhibition and coffee mornings, places of welcome, Mosque, where small booklets of poems/art about bread can be collected.
On 15th June we are holding an event to celebrate the Indian Holi Festival and promote our Spacehive campaign. Sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/holi-party-tickets-61579169955
What we'll deliver:
- Break Bread and talk with the public on a weekly basis
- Bringing communities together through bread
- Use art by locals to communicate European/UK bread history
- Baking workshops in schools with lessons about the history of bread
Why it's a great idea:
In Summer 2018, we ran an event in which 14 local families enjoyed baking 5 different breads from various cultures who don't normally bake. A muslim from the local Mosque taught everyone how to make Pakistani chapatis & the children did not use their phones for the whole 3 hours. These families would like to carry on this theme and other community groups want to respond to the Flour Power concept in their own way.
Steps to get it done:
- 4 months of breaking bread with people every week. May-August
- Bringing new people to Light House Media Centre in July
- Linking charities dealing with tackling violence in the city
- Directing people to Places of Welcome & friendly fridays(free coffee & Chat) through bread sharing
- Educate how history of bread links different countries
