So excited about meeting many of our Peace of Cake supporters and their families/friends at this Peace of Cake in Lee. Living and sharing for a better world, we hope to have cake and tea with you, coupled with a chance to meet your MP Janet Daby who will be there. There is no peace without justice and no justice without a voice – it is important that the person who represents us in Parliament knows us and we all work together for Peace!27 july

Peace of Cake at ‘ARRIVALS:Cake Off’ Goldsmith’s University Saturday 20th October 2018

Bake and bring cake to share the story or sentimental value behind your bake. Write a short paragraph about why the recipe is so important to you.
It could be as simple as ‘This lemon drizzle cake was my Grandmother’s recipe and I think of her every time I bake it’ or it could be ‘as a refugee we could not find orange flower water for my biscuits but we found rosewater and adapted the recipe – I want to pass this new recipe through the generations so that they can remember how life changed for us’.
This will then be part of a publication highlighting the significance of food and the importance it has over time and in connecting communities through merely sharing and appreciating.

Peace of Cake is partnering with Goldsmith’s University as part of the Mayor of London’s ‘Arrival’ work, ‘Celebrating Windrush and the Communities who followed’.Share the flavours of ‘home’ and the memories they bring to life.

Join Goldsmiths researchers and community groups for a bake sale with a difference. Taste bakes from Lewisham’s diverse communities, explore the hidden histories behind iconic recipes and share the memories they evoke.

Designer, lecturer and avid baker Rose Sinclair, will kick off proceedings by discussing how she uses Caribbean cakes to spark conversations in her Caribbean front room textile installations.

Next, Sociologist Dr Alex Rhys-Taylor will give a short talk on food and multicultural London, using the mango to explore how our senses help us navigate and carve out a sense of belonging in the city.

Cakes are free, but with a suggested donation of £1 to support the Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network and local causes. All donations will receive a booklet bringing together the featured recipes and the stories behind them.

Alongside delicious bakes from around the world, people of all ages and backgrounds are invited to share their audio stories of arrival in London with The Conversation Booth – A mobile recording facility encouraging conversation, listening and archiving. Designed by Goldsmiths MA student, Nicole Robson, it’s part of the Mayor of London’s ‘Arrival’ work, ‘Celebrating Windrush and the Communities who followed’.

We are also partnering with local organisation Peace of Cake, ‘Connecting Communities through Cake and Conversation’ Find out more about their work: http://www.peaceofcaketogether.org/

If you would like to bake a cake or dessert for this event and share the story behind it, please contact Will Cenci (w.cenci@gold.ac.uk).
