It’s said that once you eat someone’s food, you become part of them too. I am for sure a different person after the With(in) project. It started as my masters thesis proposal and turned into the biggest adventure of my life.
Is there a connection between the act of procuring food, preparing food and eating together, that can tell us something important about the community we live in? This initial research question led to a series of events and I am nothing but immensely grateful for the opportunity to have lived this work. Thanks to the local teams that trusted me and so kindly welcomed me into their communities. No effort was spared, and this work benefited greatly from the communal spirit they brought to it.
