Eye to Mouth is an immersive dinner experience and artistic installation by Rasha Tayeh, artist and creator of the sold out 2018 dinner series Spice Trails. Throughout the evening, guests will be invited to explore the cultural, social and political dimensions of contemporary and historical feminism, inspired by the United Nations gesture to name 1975 International Women’s Year. A culinary journey through time and space, this multi-art infused, interactive dinner will inspire constructive dialogue on contemporary intersectional feminism, with particular historical reference to the 1975 Declaration of Mexico on the Equality of Women and their Contribution to Development and Peace, and how it sparked the United Nations Decade for Women (1976 to 1985).
Join us in deconstructing mainstream disillusionment with feminism through food, art and conversation – because furthering the public appetite for women’s rights benefits us all.
