The third cohort of N.A.W. host their first event ‘A Seat at the Table’, exploring spatial justice through food

You are invited to join the third cohort of N.A.W. for a culinary experience, exploring how food marks cultural identity in the city.  Highlighting food as a key cultural amenity and tool for social justice, whether through space to dine or to harness production, the event will shed light on practitioners dedicated to advocating for this cause and encourage conversation around the spatial dimension of food, migration, culture and production.
