This talk will explore the hospitality of urban plants, their foragable offerings and expertise in sharing and ask how we might reciprocate.

This talk is part of Emma Smith’s art project Phuplec: an artwork that celebrates the small, the wild, the overripe, the rotten, the undesired and the redundant as necessary tactics for a sustainable future. Phuplec is commissioned by Resonance-Cambridge where Emma is the artist-in-residence for Cromwell Road.

Cromwell Road is part of Resonance-Cambridge, the public art programme commissioned by Cambridge Investment Partnership. Further information about the creative programme can be found at www.resonance-cambridge.co.uk/developments/cromwell-road/

This event is being held as part of Open Cambridge 2021, which will take place from 10 – 19 September 2021.
