Provisional date - Food and Ethnicity: The Durham Experience

(24 April 2020)

All are welcome to "Food and Ethnicity: The Durham Experience" – an event organised by the University’s N8 AgriFood Resilience Programme team in collaboration with the Durham BAME Network and the University’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Unit. This free event has been rescheduled, with a new provisional date set for Tuesday 8 September 2020 at Durham Castle. Registration is required.

This event aims to celebrate how, for many people, food operates as an expression of personal identity and a medium through which people can embrace and share their heritage. While using food as a lens to explore ethnic identity and cultural diversity, we are also taking this opportunity to highlight the University's ongoing work on embedding race equality and on promoting inclusion.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 situation, this date may change – but we can keep you updated with any news as soon as we hear it. Please keep an eye out for developments.

The Food and Ethnicity event features a series of talks on different links between food and ethnicity – including food insecurity, mental health, and gender roles - all in a multi-faith and multi-ethnic context. There will also be a networking dinner centred around authentic cuisines, with a menu made up of dishes reflecting the diversity of traditions and backgrounds of many members of the University community.
