What we'll deliver:
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:
Post a Comment
Rachel, Amy and Kom have all been busy this week with the launch of the Flour Power Exhibition at Newhampton Arts Centre as part of Artsfest. The opening was well received, as was Rachel's talk about the origins of the project, and its future. She has spent time with Muslim women and locals at an Eid party, and a Jo Cox picnic. A young Muslim female will be chosen from this group with leadership skills to spend the allocated budget. It has also been agreed Rachel will make bread animals with children at Stratham Street Community Centre summer school in August. The Flour Power Exhibition will hopefully now go on tour but we need your support to make that happen. We have 20% of our funding to raise in 4 days, please share far and wide.
