FOOD for THOUGHT
promoting CREATIVITy and critical thinking in the community
FOOD for THOUGHT is our latest socially engaged project exploring food as art & art as food.
Where studio is kitchen, kitchen is laboratory, and laboratory is gallery. It is inspired in part by the 2019 London V&A exhibition, FOOD: Bigger than the Plate.
Investigating the playful, radical science of celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal with Joseph Beuys’s extended definition of art and his concept of social sculpture.
The aim is to give food for people’s thoughts in a participatory arts environment, to discover what part creativity can play in reinventing town centres.
The project’s seed objective is to make the dough to offer opportunities for creative graduates to earn a professional living. By offering a smorgasbord of contemporary arts with food as a medium, metaphorically and actually.
The aspiration is a fusion of arts and sciences in a zero waste ethos, where everything is produced from basic raw ingredients/materials.
With the ultimate goal is to become a self-sustainable socially engaged organisation that funds, supports and encourages creativity in a socially responsible practice.
