Event description

Description

Co-creators Janet Carter and Elizabeth Pedler collaborate with communities who have expert knowledge of urban foods to map and share free food sources in the city. Wander the sidewalks and cityscape with two experts in urban survival as your guides.

WALK 1 - Urban Hunting with the Homeless, with Len: 11:30am-12:45pm

While Len now lives in supported housing, he has extensive experience of living on the streets and how the hunt for food can bring people together. Walk with Len to gain insight into the resourcefulness of the homeless.

WALK 2 - Indigenous Food Culture Before Colonisation with elder Dale Tilbrook: 1:00pm-2:30pm

Walk with Dale and learn about Indigenous seasons, culture and land management, bringing life to the complex and sophisticated cultivations systems that have been lost to colonisation and urban development.

PLUS: Re-thinking Food Culture: Lunch with Manna: 2:30pm-3:30pm

After the walks, a tasting plate will be served courtesy of Manna, who have been feeding hundreds of Perth's homeless community since 1996.


Registrations are essential.
