CONFLICT KITCHEN

Food Preparation for Conflict Kitchen, by Conflict Kitchen

Conflict Kitchen uses food and innovative storytelling to engage the public in discussions about cultures and people that we often know little about. Their restaurant/art project rotates identities every three to five months in relation to current geopolitical events. Over the past five years, they have focused on Afghanistan, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Palestine, and Venezuela. Each Conflict Kitchen iteration is augmented by events, performances, publications, discussions, and workshops that seek to expand the engagement that the public has with the perspectives of people living within each region of focus and their culture.

 

The following are sample classroom workshops. Additionally, they can develop a program to meet the specific needs of your students.
