Explore the politics and importance of rest & slowness over food, conversations and toasts.

As we head into darker days and longer nights we would like to invite you to a potluck at Toynbee Studios. Over food, conversation and toasts we will explore the politics and importance of rest & slowness. 

The event will be co-hosted by Malaika Cunningham, Practice Researcher at Artsadmin, whose work explores participatory performance & democracy, and artist Jennie Moran, as part of her residency Say Yes To Who or What Turns Up, which explores themes of hospitality and reciprocity in the Artsadmin Canteen. The potluck will bring together their overlapping interest in the role of food and performance in creating commonly owned spaces. This is the latest in a series of potlucks Malaika has been hosting with Artsadmin. 

About the event
Harking back to old North American traditions of the potluck each guest will suggest an ingredient to add to ‘the pot’, rather than bringing a dish each. We will come from a range of different perspectives and disciplines, each with an interest in the themes of food, rest and slowness. So, alongside a meal, we will also share ideas, perhaps some of our work, games and experiences.
