Born & Bread in Inishowen 09.09.19

ARTLINK welcomes the entire community in Inishowen to Born & Bread, a feel good event aimed at promoting inter-cultural dialogue and cooperation among different generations and ethnic groups as all knead together around the same table, while sharing skills, stories and traditions, learning from each other and enriching awareness, understanding and respect.
Dún na nGall (Fort of the Foreigners) is hugely privileged to have a diverse population with a breadth of experiences and traditions, yet we rarely have an opportunity to learn about the many customs and skills that people in our community practice. The purpose of this event is to create a platform for dialogue through creativity, a conversation through making and sharing. Its aim is to offer a friendly space for families and individuals to come together and have fun whilst learning about each other through making.
 Born & Bread, The Potting Shed & Amach Anseo Community Garden, Artlink, Fort Dunree from 3pm - 6pm, Saturday 14th Sept.
Through the collective experience of preparing and sharing bread, Born & Bread will use Amach Anseo’s newly built wood-fired oven alongside an open firepit to allow griddle and hotplate breads to be prepared as well as traditional Irish soda bread.
We chose to work with the theme of bread because bread is a staple food popular around the world and in every household in Ireland and is one of the world’s oldest foods, prepared by the simple process of baking a dough of flour and water. The virtually infinite combinations of different flours and differing proportions of ingredients, has resulted in the wide variety of types, shapes, sizes, and textures available around the world. Bread has come to take on significance beyond mere nutrition, standing as a metaphor for hospitality and welcome, evolving into a fixture in religious rituals, secular cultural life and language.
The Born & Bread event is at The Potting Shed & Amach Anseo Community Garden, Artlink, Fort Dunree from 3pm - 6pm, on Saturday 14th September 2019.
