A Bread Companion

Naku te rourou nau te rourou ka ora ai te iwi
With your basket and my basket the people will live


To mark our participation in FESTA 2018, in collaboration with Phillipstown Community Hub, A Communal Loaf has developed ‘A Bread Companion’, which is centred on the making and sharing of food. This work will be made visible through a series of creative workshops, kōrero, discussions and community meals that will be documented after the event in a book, produced collaboratively with the community.

‘A Bread Companion’ brings together creative activities, preparing and sharing of food, communal meals and community experience in the form of a book that documents the project, provides a place for the community’s creative input, experiences and stories to be heard.


But most importantly it is offered as a taonga to others exploring ways to engage with people and communities using food.
