EAT London is a collaboration between LIFT, artist and architect, Alicia Rios and Barbara Ortiz, a team of artist facilitators and 14 volunteer groups who have been planning how to recreate the city in edible form.
Reflecting both the diversity of the urban surroundings and the variety of cultures within it which give London life such spice, the map will feature a dim sum Imperial War Museum and a Buckingham Palace built from Indian mitsi sweets amongst other mouth-watering and mind-boggling delights. The public are being asked to admire the map before devouring it in Trafalgar Square.
The makers of EAT London: Project Phakama UK; Year Ten Food Technology from Mulberry School for Girls; The Spicy South from Southwark; Bowbons from Bromley by Bow Centre; Tower Hamlets Summer University; The Factory Community Project; Saathi Resource Centre (Eastwards Trust); Shoreditch Trust; Spitalfields City Farm and Coriander Club; Greenwich Vietnam Women’s Group; Roj Women Association from Halkevi, Turkish and Kurdish Community Centre; Nu-Life Day Opportunities; SubCo; Organic Training Café at City and Islington College.
