Healing Justice Ldn have teamed up with Recipes for Resistance to offer three workshops exploring Memory, Grief, and Un/belonging in relationship to the politics of food and identity. The third session was hosted at Phytology, offering a physical space to gather and close the series which had previously been online.
Raju Rage facilitated a conversation which explored our heritages and linages with all their ruptures and failures: our own unique stories that dis/connect us to this and other lands. They also brought a collection of books and zines exploring the politics of food. Special guest Rajiv Bera from Queer Masala prepared an incredible meal for us using foraged plants from Phytology’s medicinal garden, including ribwort plantain, burdock stem, mallow leaf, mugwort and more.
