An intimate tour for existing and new Friends of Primary with an opportunity to get to know the people and the work that make up this unique creative community in Nottingham.
Your hosts for this event:
Nathaniel Mann and Kimberley Bell are two residents of Primary who use their space within the building and the community to generate very different work but share many core values and interests, in human ecology, traditional craft, agriculture, labour and cultural values closely connected to the land
Kimberley Bell started Small Food Bakery within the old School kitchens of Primary 4 years ago. While the bakery operates in its own right as a business open to the public, Kimberley has also used the space to explore contemporary issues around the politics and economics of food. The bakery has become a hub for a local food movement connecting scientists, farmers, food producers and eaters to re-examine our food system; how it could better serve the needs of society and prevent further climate destruction. Small Food Bakery has gained national and international recognition as an innovative and inspirational model for increasing engagement in our food system.
You will be welcomed to tour the bakery and served a small breakfast/brunch to illustrate some of the relationships that the bakery has built with primary food producers. While enjoying the delicious food, Kimberley will talk about the significance of these relationships to the wider aims of Small Food Bakery.
Nathaniel Mann is a sound artist, composer and folk singer but perhaps best known for his work with avant-folk ensemble Dead Rat Orchestra. His past work includes installations, site specific performances and electroacoustic work and he has written for Tate, BBC Scotland and London Contemporary Orchestra.
Nathaniel will have just returned from a British council residency in Brazil where he plans to work with the Mato Grosso State Orchestra, the Instituto Homem Brasileiro (Institute for the Brazilian Man) and the Wauja Tribe – an indigenous tribe of Xingu, for whom music plays an integral part of society and culture. This will be a unique opportunity to hear Nathaniel talk about his experience in Brazil while it is very fresh, and hear an exclusive live performance relating to the residency.
