Activities per year
Responding to the growth of child poverty (and food poverty) in Northern Ireland, I commissioned artist Liz Cullinane to develop a series of community dinners in June-July 2014 in a pop-up site- the Office of Important Art – created by Young at Art in a vacant unit in a shopping centre. These dinners were designed to bring people and families together from different backgrounds to explore what concepts like home, family, hunger and love meant to them. They were incredible sharing experiences with all manner and mixture of people sitting together sharing food. Images on the walls and prompt cards and quizzes on the table encouraged discussion. The event was repeated in March 2015 with a series of special dinners to talk about sustainable food cities and children’s rights.
