The Food Bridge vzw in collaboration with Gemeente Elsene Brussel, BigPicnic Project, FAAB vzw, GC De Platoo and other associations, invites you to the 'Food Talks' event.
The concept of the “ Food Talks” is to use cultural tools for community building in an urban space. Food is one commonality in every society with the ability to convey and reinforce group identity. At the same time, food is flexible enough as a tool of cultural engagement and interaction. This is a feat that is not achievable with politics or religion in the current urban space.
At the event, we invite people to cook together, share a meal, recipes or food stories. Interested participants can bring a dish or bread that is unique to their food culture.
We also have interesting activities for children. This will be an ideal summer fun for families too.
