Radical Hospitality 1: We Eatin' Good + GRUEL

The radical power of sharing food brings us together. Across tables we pass plates, share knowledge, stories and laughter.

You’re invited to converge, connect and spark new encounters with artists, thinkers, innovators, friends and neighbours in Moreland.

Wear a good shirt, bring your appetite and get set for some real old-school hospitality .

Minimum capacity. Maximum delicious.

For our very first iteration of Radical Hospitality we’re joined by our friends We Eatin’ Good! and GRUEL.

We Eatin’ Good! pictured is a collaborative food and cooking platform dedicated to amplifying young Queer, Black, Indigenous and People of Colour. Created by Matisse Laida, who works closely with Nisha Hunter, this platform engages with QPoC across the world and holds space for the community to share and consume a range of cooking practices, culture and knowledge in a safe and celebratory way. For Radical Hospitality, the We Eating Good team will be collaborating with GRUEL, a Naarm-based experimental supper club, fronted by Quincy Malesovas.

GRUEL is a Melbourne/Naarm-based experimental supper club. Our goal isn’t to be an alternative to conventional dining, but something that exists outside it and evolves with it. Rather than eschew the mundane, grotesque or confronting sides of food, we embrace them. We aim to foster social and cultural awareness through this medium and provide a platform for those with an alternative approach to hospitality.

Learn more about GRUEL.

Radical Hospitality 1 is presented as part of Countercurrents, a new public art commission supported by Next Wave and City of Moreland, through Arts Moreland.

Next Wave welcomes everyone to this event, our venue is 100% wheelchair and pram accessible. We are able to assist with any access requests you may have ahead of this event, that are not listed. For further enquiries about how Next Wave can support your access requirements, please contact our team on (03) 9387 3376 or email us at nextwave@nextwave.org.au
