For one evening only, Goldsmiths’ historic Deptford Town Hall will host a feast prepared and eaten by community groups, historians, academics and local people. But the People’s Kitchens isn’t just about cooking and eating together, it will help participants exchange ideas and forge connections.
Each table will host a discussion on forms of ‘commoning’ led by experts from different walks of life. Subjects will range from education to social care, art, the economy and land use. The event will help generate insightful discussions about the relationship between the radical, public and creative aspects of the People’s Kitchen and the history and politics of New Cross, Goldsmiths and Deptford Town Hall.
