The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA), Liverpool City Council and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre have organised a major artist-led project in Liverpool, dubbed FOOD FIGHT – The Battle for Food Security, culminating in a major public event on Saturday, 30 April (5-8pm) at Bigge Park, Liverpool. The project, which aims to raise awareness about food security and access to affordable, fresh, and nutritious food for everyone in Liverpool and South Western Sydney, leads up to this major event which is set to feature local and healthy food stalls, live cooking shows, DJs, soap-box performances by “Food Warriors”, talks on nutrition, and a dramatic finale involved a short artist-choreographed food fight. Yes, an actual choreographed food fight.
As part of the project, artists will conduct a series of community engagement workshops with local partners such as the Liverpool Girls High School, Inspire Community Services and the Liverpool Community Kitchen, Food Bank, OzHarvest and Youth Food Movement Australia. FOOD FIGHT is part of the MCA’s C3West program, led by Sydney artists Diego Bonetto and Branch Nebula (Lee Wilson and Mirabelle Wouters), in collaboration with designer Genevieve Murray of Future Method Studio.
