Govanhill Food Map at the Govanhill Baths, 2012

A collaborative project with Clem Sandison, 2012

Eating In Eating Out was was developed for the Streetland festival in Govanhill May 2012 and was followed up by an exhibition in the Govanhill Baths in September 2012.

We worked with local people and businesses in exploring, mapping, sharing and tasting food in Govanhill. The project brought together the Hidden Garden’s Culture Kitchen project, led by Clem and the Glasgow Food Map, which is a project I have been developing ideas about for a while.

There were three main aspects to the project;

Eating In was a film by Clem Sandison and Kim Beverage, which offers a brief glimpse into the kitchens of six people in Govanhill as they cook their favourite meals and share the stories behind the recipes. See the film on the Streetland website

A Govanhill Food Map was created detailing all the places you buy purchase and consume food. A team of people collected the information over a number of weeks and involved finding out who owned the businesses, how long they had been there, what their best sellers were and where they sourced their produce from. This was handed out at the Streetland festival as a take away map and created as a large scale version in the exhibition where people were invited to add their own local food experiences and memories.

Eating Out led on from the mapping and along with the information we gathered soup recipes from some of the local cafes. The Hidden Gardens Cultural Cookery group and Govanhill Grub then selected four soups which were cooked up then delivered round the streets of Govanhill in a soup trolley specially designed by Jamie Clements.

Thanks to everyone who has taken part in and supported the project including Streetland and the Govanhill Baths Community Trust. A special thanks to Maryisa Mikicka, Andy Wilbur, Tim Foster and John McCann.

The project was funded through Streetland and Culture Kitchen by Awards for All, South East Integration Network, Glasgow Life and Creative Scotland.
