Yum yum! Exhibition Opening Success

Over 100 people from all parts of Lewisham’s diverse community filled the atrium of the Stuart Hall building on Friday the 24th May for the opening of the ‘Austerity Bites: Food Stories from Lewisham’ exhibition.  The buzz was amazing, and the community tasting menu provided by Cummin’ Up Caribbean caterers went down a storm.  We lived for those few hours the way in which food can act as a powerful catalyst for bringing people together.  For the organisers, it was a satisfying exercise in building (edible) bridges between Goldsmiths University and the wider community it is embedded within.
