TINIEST SOUP KITCHEN

Tiniest Soup Kitchen was serving up to those in need of a good hearty feed this week. Camped at Monash University as students madly prepared for assessment, the pipin' hot soup was well received. On the menu so far: cauliflower and caraway and a Thai style sweet potato.

BRING A STRANGER DINNER PARTY

PREMISE:

In preparation for my major project this year I am developing several experimental and experiential social practice food/dinner events. Your company and participation is requested at the first of these events:

Bring A Stranger Dinner Party
 a social practice event

The meal* and all refreshments will be provided. You are each however required to bring a vital component: a Stranger**. You have the day of the event, to find and enlist their attendance. I will do the same. Taking place at: Anytime Place, 20 Ovens St, Brunswick.



Kind regards,
Bethany J Fellows



* Three courses. I am an excellent cook and regularly cater for large groups (50+) in conceptual and formal capacities. References can be provided if the incentive is lacking.

** Someone whom you do not know, one who is neither a friend nor acquaintance.

Of key
interest is the strategies that participants take to find guests and the exchanges that take place.

The Finer Things in Life...

Bethany was out and about greasing it up boutique style last week despite the blustery weather. Louis Vuitton paper bags very popular, potato cakes marginally less popular...next up Chanel battered savs!
I joke, I joke.

Finally! Bethany J Fellows headed down to Southern Cross Station this week to hand out some classics! It took a whole hour during the work-home rush. Can't even give 'em away...

GRAFFITI FOR THE BLIND

Bethany was out and about offending the blind this week with some convenient sticky braille graffiti. This of course has been done before, but has never been so accessible and rude. Nothing like a bit of toilet humour to offset the commute
