Join ITZATNA Arts for their new community cooking project ‘PAPAS CALIENTES (Hot Potatoes/Small Potatoes)’ in Moseley Park & Pool for Moseley Festival 2022.
We’ll 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 (Hot Potatoes/Small Potatoes) 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.
