Inspired by Squash’s 100-year food street plan in Liverpool 8, join artist Nina to imagine a future habitat on the site currently known as Liverpool. What will be next for the pool of life? What can we plan for our descendants to enjoy? Large-scale, multi-coloured picture making sessions will record the imaginings of citizens and visitors.
Rooted in Liverpool 8 since 2007, Squash is a dynamic food, arts and environmental-focused social enterprise. Grown by a diverse group of local people, with backgrounds in and passion for cooking, horticulture, visual arts, film-making, performance and architecture, they are committed to participatory social change by means of bold, creative approaches.
Squash embrace the potential of local people by together reclaiming food production via food growing, cooking and culinary craft skills. They explore new ways for their neighbourhood to flourish; creating special, celebratory events and through their four-season Food for Real arts festival. Go and visit their new home: SQUASH; a pioneering, community-designed food space on Windsor Street.
