29 Nov 2014
Part of a series of participatory and theoretical sessions in the ICA studio on experimental and radical learning and pedagogy, led by members of the New Terms group.
Children learn to enact democracy by sitting down to a family meal, night after night. The collective table is a means of survival, a form of vulnerable existence, and an instantiation of community. The Democratic Table performatively stages a participatory learning experience – food preparation, eating, and conversing – to investigate how shared culinary encounters can create alternative (radical?) spaces for affective education.
Session facilitated by New Terms member Jess Adams.
This event is initiated by ICA Student Forum member Anna Kontopoulou
