Wednesday 14 March
6 – 8pm
Join us for a Lactofermenting workshop, hosted by artist Sean Roy Parker marking the launch of Bloc’s brand new Public Programme; ‘Salon 18’.
‘Eating hyper-processed foods leads to nutrient deficiency, physical lethargy and increased plastic waste. Fermenting foods reverses these effects and more! Cheap, easy and good for your gut, this DIY session will give you all the basic knowledge to get started.’
Sean Roy Parker (b. 1988, Kent) is a visual artist and social worker based in London. He studies human attitudes towards waste, material lifecycles and feelings towards the Anthropocene. Capitalising on surplus and antipathy, he distributes playful composites like chutneys, sculptures and pamphlets locally and globally through exchange. Parker is a current associate of School of the Damned and delivers collaborative workshops to fringe communities under PEFA Projects.
Free, limited capacity, event registration essential.
Bloc Projects is proud to maintain a public programme that is free for everyone. However, visitors are encouraged to consider bringing along an item to donate to the local Foodbank. For the Spring/Summer season of our public programme we will proudly be collecting basic toiletries and food (packets, tinned or dried) for The S2 Foodbank. For a full list of suggested/much needed items please see: http://s2foodbank.org.uk/#help
Salon 18 forms part of Making Ways, a new programme supported by Sheffield Culture Consortium through Arts Council England to showcase, celebrate and develop the exceptional contemporary visual art produced in the city.
Bloc Projects’ actively encourages critical as well as creative engagement with our evolving Public Programme. For all programming enquiries, contact our Public Programmes Curator Kerry Campbell : firstname.lastname@example.org
