Inspired by the family kitchen as a gathering place, Public Kitchen invites you to feast, learn, share, imagine, unite and claim public space. Join DS4SI in Dorchester’s Upham’s Corner neighborhood, as the Public Kitchen launches a week of fresh food, cooking classes & competitions, rice & beans, food-inspired art, a night market and much more… Launched by the Design Studio for Social Intervention (ds4si), the Public Kitchen is an intervention aimed at social and food justice– an experiment in how more vibrant public infrastructures can improve the quality of our lives. You can join as a volunteer, story-teller, activist chef, market seller, and more! Our lead artists are Chef Nadine Nelson of Global Local Gourmet and the Golden Arrows design collective. Many thanks to our community partners : Upham’s Corner Main Street, The Food Project, The Strand, Shirley Eustis House, Tropical Foods, Haley House, Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative and Fair Foods.
