With These Hands, We Eat is a community project that was produced while I was an Artist-In-Residence at Granby Winter Garden.
On July 30th, August 20th and September 10th 2023, local community members of Cairns Street, Toxteth, Liverpool were invited to Granby Winter Garden for dinner. The dinners were catered for with plant-based meals by amazing community businesses and neighbours, including Yamm Tree, Ferguson’s Bakery and Squash CIC.
Together, we shared what makes a neighbourhood and what foods can be grown on our streets, we reminisced about memorable adventures in natural environments – including harvesting fresh fruits from the family farm, and we met old friends and new friends who were also excited about food and community.
This exhibition is a documentation of us harvesting, purchasing, making and eating our dinner.
The exhibition was up at Granby Winter Garden from the 21st of October to the 5th of November 2023.
