WAR GASTRONOMY: RECIPES OF RELOCATION
Saturday, June 1
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Downtown Berkeley (Shattuck Ave and Center Street, at BART Plaza)
FREE

Join exhibition artists Justin Hoover and Chris Treggiari in downtown Berkeley for War Gastronomy: Recipes of Relocation, a pop-up food and art event. 

War Gastronomy: Recipes of Relocation believes that establishing a physical communal space is quintessential for sharing stories, developing community, practicing empathy and establishing personal public interactions. This project is a pop-up participatory café, interventionist community development project and cultural heritage archive, serving meals derived from recipes drawn from personal stories of forced or willful relocation due to war or conflict. Through sharing or trading food and stories of personal migration struggles, this project continually develops its archive, and shares the public’s personal and political histories of human migration, statelessness and emotional courage in times of turbulence in order to create a sense of urban richness and diversity.
After visiting the War Gastronomy café in Downtown Berkeley, head to the Brower Center for special Saturday gallery viewing hours between 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.

Tickets: $10 Advance/ $12 Door

Each of us who works to change the world is on a journey.  And each of these journeys begins with a moment of discovery that, in time, becomes a story. "Journeys" is about bringing our stories to life--a special opportunity to hear from the Bay Area's leading change-makers and social entrepreneurs, reliving and retelling their Aha! moments. We'll hear how each was shaped by their discoveries and how those discoveries, in turn, are shaping the world. And along the way, we'll explore how stories work, sip some tea, and share our own journeys.
 
Among the featured storytellers:
Andy Ruben: Co-founder of sharing platform Yerdle.com, first Chief Sustainability Officer for Walmart
Maya Chorengel: Managing Director of microfinance group Elevar Equity, former Vice President of Warburg Pincus
Jason Rainey: Executive Director of International Rivers, organizer for human rights and environmental initiatives throughout the world

Hosted by Jay Golden, co-founder of Wakingstar
