Join Itzatna Arts for their new community cooking project 'Papas Calientes´ (Hot potatoes/Cold potatoes) in Moseley Park and Pool for Moseley Festival 2022. We will be digging up the park to build our own communal earth ovens to cook, bake, and roast our own potatoes (and other fruits and veg!) before sharing them with the festival and wider Moseley community in a communal feast and live performance.
Papas Calientes is an Outdoor communal cooking installation exploring the Latin American roots and postcolonial journey of the humble potato, and how we as a community are responding to the ongoing worldwide cost of living, energy, and climate crisis.
