Globe Aroma invites Samah Hijawi for two writing workshops
Globe Aroma is an artistic work and meeting place in Brussels, offering support and a network to artists, creators and art lovers from newcomer backgrounds. Kunstenwerkplaats collaborates structurally with Globe Aroma.
KWP artist, chef and astrologer Samah Hijawi was invited to give two writing workshops this month: “The kitchen as a place of resistance” and “Ode to plants.” Globe Aroma is hosting a series of writing workshops in June and July, Writing to make it happen, around different writing practices, futurologist approaches, and socio-political topics.
With her long-term project Kitchen.Table, Samah explores diverse culinary histories and cultures to better understand how they influence our current food politics. Using the basic ingredients of the Mediterranean spice mixture Za’atar as a starting point, she delves into various food cultures, including our spiritual and mythological connections to food, and relates them to contemporary food cultures in cities.
