Commoning and the politics of food – reading, discussion, action preparation – 19th September

New Cross Commoners, People's Kitchen
The Field New Cross from 6.30 to 8pm
Address: 385 Queens Road, SE14

New Cross Commoners invite to you to join our next reading and discussion session where we will look at the commons and the politics of food, particularly relating to urban spaces, everyday consumption, individual/collective consciousness and the market.

From here, we have an opportunity to look at current community practices at New Cross and present/future events in which we are involved. Especially we would like to talk about Weekly Kitchens at the Field and the preparation to the People’s Kitchen at the Deptford Town Hall in November this year which will coincide with Radical New Cross Festival.

Some ‘food for thought’ here below :

Please also take note of late Paul Hendrich talk on the history of Deptford Town Hall, slavery ‘and the relationship between Goldsmiths and the local community. The talk was given at the event ‘Migrating University: No Detention, No Deportation, No Borders in Education: Freedom of Movement for All’ held at Goldsmiths in September 2007.

See you all soon!
