Food is everywhere: in our café, in our shows, our surroundings, our heritage, and in the heritage of everyone who calls Bristol home. It connects us all. Over the last two years, food has been connecting Bristol Old Vic to a community of women with experience of migration. We have gathered at the theatre to collaborate, learn and share. Homemade is an exhibition of what we found.
Nestled in the theatre’s Pit Corridor, Homemade features items from our partners at Bristol Archives as well as objects and stories from the group. The exhibition also includes a Listening Station where visitors can get a taste of the stories and spaces that inspired our connections.
The exhibition is fully accessible to all visitors and audience members, and open for anyone to explore for free, throughout the day.
"This Exhibition offers visitors the chance to reflect on how, why and where we eat the food we love – and who it connects us to”
Heritage Manager, Holly Wallis
Homemade was curated by Hatty Welsh with graphics and design by Ellie Cassidy and sound design by Sophia Oriogun-Williams. It is part of a series of temporary exhibitions which share experiences and learning from our National Lottery Heritage Fund Project, Unscripted: A Performative History of Bristol, Bristolians and Bristol Theatre.
All our heritage work is made possible thanks to National Lottery players.
