Sligo Global Kitchen emerged out of the Model’s collaborative arts project between resident artist Anna Spearman and those living in direct provision in Sligo. The project began as a gesture of solidarity, and an opportunity to link available resources with local needs. An open invitation to those living in direct provision to come to the Model to cook and share a meal with family and friends has evolved over time into a conversation about how we can use these everyday rituals of cooking and eating to make connections between people and communities both within Sligo and further afield.
Sligo Global Kitchen has held a number of public events to date including a Bob Marley celebration, a recipe swap at The Bureau of Radical Accessibility in the Model in collaboration with resident artist Daniella Palimariu and most recently a sell out food stall at Cairde’s Parkfest. If you are interested in getting involved by sharing recipes and cooking skills, or in meeting people over a plate of food you can join our mailing list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project has been supported by the Model, GIY and AIB’s Get Ireland Growing Fund, the Arts Council’s Artist in the Community Scheme managed by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts and the Ireland Funds.
