CLIMAVORE: Educate | Cooking Sections
CLIMAVORE: On Tidal Zones is a long-term project by ATLAS Arts and Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual & Alon Schwabe), which began in 2016. Phase two of the project, CLIMAVORE: Educate, aims to build on the initial research conducted and the public programme to engage younger generations in a pilot education programme.
The core of this is creating a series of ‘interventions’ into the Hospitality and Practical Cookery curriculum of talks and interactive practical sessions supported by local experts, including chefs and food producers. The workshops will foster knowledge of, and engagement with, sustainable aquaculture. This will culminate with a celebratory meal at the oyster table in Bayfield, devised with the students to mark the end of the workshops and initiate the CLIMAVORE: Apprenticeship programme.
This will see ATLAS partner with restaurants and cafes across the island to offer apprenticeships for the high school students in the summer holidays. With chef support, the apprentices will create and develop their CLIMAVORE dish; act as advocates for the project to members of staff and diners.
Parallel to this, we are engaging Portree Primary School pupils in a six-week creative workshop, Your Shore, led by artist Philippa Thomas exploring the tidal zone.
This project is supported by The Pebble Trust and Patagonia Environmental Grants Fund of Tides Foundation.
