What can the sharing of kai do to transform how we conceive of knowledge, resilience and mana motuhake?

The Slow Boil Opening Dinner materialises recipes and kai as vessels of intergenerational knowledge transfer, the means to an embodied life force that resists colonisation, and the ability to nourish community in the context Karangahape Road,Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland. Designed by the Boil Up Crew, the meal served on this evening will explore kai ecologies and histories through the composition of ingredients and form.

Following Maramataka, the Māori lunar calendar, concepts will be unearthed over the course of the exhibition towards a shared vision of kai security in the Karangahape community, this dinner begins the exhibition's unfolding research process.

Two seatings will take place over the night, where up to 60 people will be accommodated during each sitting. Tickets will be limited to this number and the menu presented by Boil Up Crew will be revealed on opening night. Please specify if you require vegetarian or vegan options. The servings will be punctual, so please try and be on time as your place will be waiting for you.
