‘Sharing is Caring - Virtual Dinner Edition’
Through her practice, Claudia Phares researches strategies to maintain her art practice whilst simultaneously raising children. Hosting a dinner online is a socially-engaged event that aims to create a sense of community through sharing food. In light of the self-isolation we’re subjected to, we realise our vulnerability. We can try to alleviate the sense of powerlessness by sharing what we can.
Hosted by Claudia Phares and her young family, ‘Sharing is Caring’ is an online communal dinner. Through virtual interaction, this unique experience aims to reinvent the concept of a communal dinner in this new world we are living in. Run through the platform Jitsi, we welcome all families and community members to join in the process of eating, talking, and sharing a meal.
So that we can all share and eat the same meal, Claudia will share online the recipe for a lentil soup used for the communal dinner a week before the event. This recipe is simple to prepare and can be adapted to most dietary needs.
‘Collective-Kolektif’ hosts Indonesian collectives including KUNCI Cultural Studies Center, Ace House, OMNI space, Ruang MES 56, and ruangrupa; alongside Melbourne-based groups Her Africa Is Real, Hyphenated Projects, eleven-collective, and Sound School, with more to be announced.
Archie Barry will present a thread of curated readings from their diary entries written between 1999 and 2019, laced together with excerpts of affect theory, linguistics and existential philosophy. Polyvocal and correlative, the presentation searches for ramified language that could function (or dysfunction) to touch the perpetual flux of personhood.
MUSIK BOX is an ongoing series of experimental music concerts featuring emerging and established artists and musicians. The upcoming concert features electronic music.
Please join us on Saturday 30 November from 2 - 4pm for ‘The Design Plot’. This will be the final event at Bus Projects’ current Rokeby st site. ‘The Design Plot’ is helping us say goodbye to our site that we have occupied since 2013 before we move into our new site at CAP in 2020.
