Write & Eat meets Food Union @ The POD – 9/4/2014
Food Union from 2.00pm
Write & Eat at 4.30pm
@ The POD, 1A Lamb St., CV1 4AE
Try something different – wholesome, hearty, healthy food – all without meat!
Meals sans meat can be a veritable feast, a culinary treat full of colour and flavour.
As ever, Food Union invites Everyone to come along and get involved with cooking a variety of dishes alongside our award-winning within a real-life budget that is both affordable and sustainable!
Organic vs Industrial
Inspired by Jack Monroe’s revolutionary war on food poverty in the UK and her ready-meal challenge, Food Union will be focussed on producing delicious, healthy versions of ready-meals on a budget, and potentially saving money!
We aim to create “processed” foods that are fun to make and good for your stomach and your wallet!
The poetry workshop that follows will wrestle with the same issues of authenticity between natural spaces and human-made urban environments and challenge the pre-conception that these spaces cannot be made more “real” or natural for human beings.
The day will also be punctuated by a Q&A with sound artist Cormac Faulkner!
When did you last make time to listen to your own breath – the rustling of leaves – or the sound of rain on glass?
The Pea Pod Collective have commissioned Sound Artist Cormac Faulkner to lead Sonic Potential workshops on 18th and 19th March 2014. http://cormacfaulkner.wordpress.com/about/ To find out more you are invited to attend an audience with Cormac Faulkner on 12th March or you can book individual workshops via the links below.
Cormac Faulkner is an Irish artist now based in Coventry. His work is concerned with our reaction to different spaces and how our behaviour and understanding can change when presented with new information and new ways of exploring them. He is a multi-disciplinary artist and uses sound, light and sculptural materials in his work.
Both workshops (free to attend) consist of a sound-walk and will introduce you to deep listening as well as some of the audio recording techniques of a sound artist. One workshop will explore the sonic landscape of the outdoors and another will investigate an Industrial theme.
Cormac’s previous commissions include the 2006, “I am an Instrument,” a permanent sound installation on the staircase of The Herbert Art Gallery and “Axis Mundi,” a light and sound installation for twine and light bulb (premiere Pluspace Gallery, Coventry April 2012).
