BSUFN to launch Hastings Bites Back project at the Hastings Herring Fair

Biting teeth-blog2The BSUFN will be at the Hastings Herring Fair on Sat 31 Oct, at the Stade Hall on the seafront, encouraging people in Hastings to find out about social and cultural food research and get involved in a new project, organised by Hastings-based BSUFN researcher, Abigail Wincott (

Members of the Brighton Unemployed Centre’s Families Project (BUCFP) and Bella Wheeler of the University of Sussex have just finished a fantastic research project into food poverty. They’ll be showing their art exhibition Art on the Breadline and sharing their experiences of doing a community-university action research project. Visitors to the Herring Fair will get to try out some of the techniques developed specially to enable collaborative research projects like these.

BUCFP beans_blog2There will be collage, a props table and mind mapping activities, all aimed at getting people thinking about what they’d like to research and why. And of course we’ll be trying to sign people up to the BSUFN and to our new community research project in Hastings, Hastings Bites Back.

Abigail will keep all the mindmaps and collages as a starting point for the new project, along with any information sent in by email or on returned postcards, which are being distributed locally.
