Continuing with the talk series What is…? This discussion introduces the theoretical framework of phenomenology as a concept to explore the structure of consciousness, aesthetics and our experiences of the contemporary art object. This talk is in collaboration with the MA programme, ACW at NCAD.

Location: The Projects Arts Centre, Temple Bar

OUR TABLE is a celebration of food traditions from a variety of countries. It is being organised to highlight the fact that people in direct provision are not allowed to cook for themselves and how that impacts on family and cultural identity. The aim is to show that there is a wealth of food knowledge being lost to the next generation.

A two-day pop-up cafe. The menu devised and cooked each day by people in direct provision.

Drop in area in the foyer of The Project Arts Centre with hot drinks and cake from various nations such as robooish, chai and honey and mint tea. A suggested donation of €2.00 for the drinks but it is mainly a place where people can chat, interact and find out about more about direct provision.

We are asking the public to donate flowers from their garden to decorate the table and also to show solidarity and be included in the event.

Money paid will go to cover costs of participants travel, the food, equipment needed etc Excess will go to the Refugee Council of Ireland.

This event has been organized by current ACW masters student Michelle Darmody.
