Eat the City
Wander the sidewalks and cityscape with two experts in urban survival as guides.
Walk 1 – Urban hunting with the homeless, led by Len
Saturday and Sunday 11:30am, The Nook
While Len now lives in supported housing, he has extensive experience of living on the streets and how the hunt for food can bring people together. Walk with Len and gain insight into the resourcefulness of the homeless.
Walk 2 – Indigenous food culture before colonisation, led by elder Dale Tilbrook Saturday and Sunday 1pm, The Nook
Walk with Dale and learn about Indigenous seasons, culture and land management, bringing to life the complex and sophisticated cultivation systems that have been lost to colonisation and urban development.
Re-thinking Food Culture: Lunch with Manna
Saturday and Sunday 2:30pm, Library Portico
A tasting plate will be served courtesy of Manna, who have been feeding hundreds of Perth homeless since 1996.
Co-creators Janet Carter and Elizabeth Pedler collaborate with communities who have expert knowledge of urban foods to map and share free food sources in the city. Eat the City is proudly supported by International Art Space.
