First Tuesday: Silvie Fisch, Oral History Unit and Collective, Newcastle University on Foodbank Histories
November 5 @ 19:00
‘Foodbank Histories’ was initiated in 2018 as a collaborative research partnership between the Newcastle West End Foodbank, Northern Cultural Projects CIC, and Newcastle University Oral History Unit & Collective. The project recorded interviews with clients, volunteers and foodbank supporters, aiming to challenge public understanding of the issues of food poverty.
Since it started ‘Foodbank Histories’ has taken on a life of its own. Silvie Fisch, Director of Northern Cultural Projects and Associate Researcher at the Oral History Unit, will talk about the plurality of outcomes from this ongoing work, as well as its challenges and aspirations.
