Feast for Mandela
Food, Arts & Discussion
Arnolfini | November 4, 2018 | 3:30 pmBook now
Marking the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birth and reflecting on his achievements, this curated ‘feast’ offers food, conversation, arts intervention and song. Forget Sunday lunch and join us for a spread of dishes from across Africa prepared by our friends from Cameroon, Eritrea, South Africa and Kenya, plus more. Food, music and conversation are a winning combination and we will be bringing all three to the table.
South African musician and songstress Sisanda Myataza and Pantsula maestro Professor Lephafa from S. Africa will share their perspective on being children of the post-apartheid ‘Rainbow Nation’, Dr Jacqueline Maingard and Dr Robert Skinner join us from UoB with thoughtful provocations for conversation including the role of photo-journalism as witness to resistance and change, and artist/illustrator Jasmine Thomson will be live sketching throughout the afternoon, plus more contributors to be announced. Come and be part of an afternoon of celebration with delicious food and wine (included)! A feast in more ways than one…
This event is followed by a screening of Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony, a stirring tribute to the role of black freedom music in the long and arduous struggle against apartheid, also at Arnolfini on Sunday 4 November – Find out more here!
