Farm City Chautauqua: Communal Table: Stone Soup
Story reading, crafts, and stirring the pot together....An event for adults and kids alike inspired by variations of the folktale -- Stone Soup. Participants encouraged to bring an ingredient, a favorite family recipe and a story to share. Design a personalized cover and sew the binding for your own 'cook book' of soup recipes. Folks will taste the veggie soup which they helped make as a group.
Ticket price covers food, chef supervision, storyteller, artist-led craft workshop and supplies. Each adult ticket entitles you to one child's admission free. Additional children's tickets will be $5.00 each. Tell us your child's school and we will donate a $1.00 of the ticket price to their school's PTA.
Communal Table: Stone Soup is part of "Chautauqua," a series of twenty plus unique food-themed Assemblies curated by Derek Denckla of FarmCity.US and hosted by 61 Local Public House in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, a new establishment dedicated to locally crafted food. Farm City Chautauqua aims to create community through food (and vice versa), assembling a series of innovative and diverse events and exhibitions harking back to historic cultural gatherings held in rural farming communities all over America. Launched in 2010, FarmCity.US is an action-research project exploring social, cultural and financial ways to invest in the growth of urban agriculture.
Communal Table hosts a monthly series of explorations into the ways we create community through food to foster mindfulness of the ways cooking and eating are communal acts. Communal Table is a collaborative project of artists Deena Lebow and Ame Gilbert who have supported their artwork by cooking while slowly transforming food itself into their arts practice.
