Devised and facilitated by artist Magda Fabianczyk, you are invited to participate in the making of a soup. Each attendee is encouraged to bring an ingredient for a collective negotiation of what goes in the dish. This will be a metaphorical starting point for a discussion around notions of democracy present in the way we work and organise our lives.

Democratic Soup, as an Edible Intervention previously took place at PoSt Projects Space (2009), where we looked at notions of democracy present within creative processes. The recent democratic crisis in Poland (and Brexit debate) provoked another Edible Intervention (2017) at Studio Voltaire, this time in partnership with East European Resource Centre and They Are Here. www.fabianczyk.com
