Lunch Exchange_invite

 

Dinner Exchange Americana & Emily Stover invite you to a Saturday lunch performance at the Hmongtown Marketplace on June 28th, 2014, 12 midday.

Please join us for a casual culinary event amidst the vendors of the market.

Cocktail hour will start at 11 am, for which we will provide the food and prepare it together with you, for you.

Starting from 12 o’clock we kindly ask you to bring your own produce that you can purchase from the Hmong vendors around us and that we will cook for you.

We will provide you with instructions and directions for buying on site.

Selected artists and activists will invite you to join their table and present and discuss their projects that use food as a trigger for moments of conversation & discussion, the exchange of knowledge, and as inspiration for social change.

——

Dinner Exchange Americana is an offspring of Dinner Exchange Berlin, a culinary project that was founded in Berlin, Germany, in October 2011 by Sarah Mewes and Sandra Teitge and is concerned with food waste.

In collaboration with the designer and artist Emily Stover we look forward to serving food made from donated and provided produce paired with contributions by the invited artists and activists at this special venue.

We would like to thank the Hmongtown Marketplace management team and Eat for Equity for collaborating with us on this occasion.

Until then enjoy the sun,

Emily & Sandra

Dinner Exchange Berlin invites you to a Sunday brunch at the Contemporary Food Lab (CFL).

The CFL is an innovative concept, the mix of art and science with culture and nature to provide a neutral platform for dialogue to the broader audience, rather than only typical expert knowledge that is usually given by such forums.

 In collaboration with the artist Anne Duk Hee Jordan and others we look forward to serving a menu made from donated organic produce paired with performances/contributions by the invited artists at this innovative venue.
