We are taking liberties to fill seemingly empty spaces by inviting people to share food and ideas. Eating, listening, thinking, talking
& throwing stones at prevailing narratives.
Please bring a plate of plant-based food and an object, text or experience that is stimulated by the theme, MAKING KIN(D).
It is open to loose and interdisciplinary interpretation.

Months ago Janita Craw and I brainstormed how we might activate this space.
Donna Haraway’s rallying cry to make kin seems so apt provocation in a world that seems so divisive.
Haraway urges us to make kin not only based on ancestry or genealogy but constructing them from rich cultural and biological diversity, from a range of human beings and other species and may I add inanimate objects.
This shed is magical structure, Val smith recently had a queer dating site work for Auckland Fringe and I think we need to have a night of dating this architectural gem.
What better way to active a site and make kin, make kind than forming connections over food and conversation.
