Nowhere Islands (food and community making platform)

About Nowhere Island
The Island is Nowhere Kitchen’s itinerant practice of installing live kitchen environments as a means of not only occupying an already existing context, but also collaborating to catalyze them. A state of ritualistic improvisation takes place where elements found in-situ are used to cook a given situation. The rituals that surround the cooking and eating meal create an ephemeral state of community that is specific only to the moment. It belongs to no other time but now. Dishes belong to no other places but here. It is an ‘island’ that generate a tribe in-situ and situates local desires to collaborate to weave other possible futures.
