Elsewhere and WFU Campus Kitchen Serve Up Southern Hospitality and Screen Printed Pancakes at SECCA
(Greensboro, NC) - Come hungry and make collectivity happen. As part of Alive in the Kitchen and SECCA’s current exhibition, Collective Actions, Elsewhere and The Campus Kitchen at Wake Forest University will host a pancake social with art activities and performances in SECCA’s auditorium lobby and sculpture deck on Saturday, February 28 from 12-3pm.
The Campus Kitchen is a collaboration of Wake Forest University students, faculty, staff, dining services, agency partners and the Winston-Salem community. They recycle prepared but never served food from Campus Dining into new meals for social service agencies.
Elsewhere and Campus Kitchen will share ideas for improvisational cooking, reducing food waste, and using at-hand resources to meet the hunger and nutritional needs of our community.
Alive in the Kitchen is an evolving set of participatory culinary experiments that extend Elsewhere’s core concepts of hospitality, play, and resourcefulness. As a platform for intergenerational education, Alive in the Kitchen promotes the creation of community around meal sharing, nutrition, local foodways, creative cooking, humor and the magic of puppetry. Watch a five-episode series produced for Alive in the Kitchen and AcreTV at elsewhere.tv.
SECCA’s current exhibition, Collective Actions, imagines and activates new forms of collectivity through arts and community action. Exhibited artworks in this group show encompass sculpture, performance, design/architecture studio work, and socially engaged public interventions.
