Turnip Time Machine, Direct Action and Food Preserves Workshop

Turnip Time Machine, Direct Action and Food Preserves Workshop

Tuesday, October 24th, 6:00pm-9:00pm

Sherbourne Health Centre, 333 Sherbourne Street

Classroom Kitchen (2nd floor)


What do pickled turnips have to do with HIV Education and LGBTQIA History? We at the Softball Collective invite you to take part in learning our history in a hands-on and interactive way. 

Turnip Time Machine is inspired by Fermentation and Pickling and its presence in every single culture worldwide. Together we will use the fermentation and pickling as a metaphorical vehicle to revisit and challenge HIV/AIDS history. At this workshop, young LGBTQ youth will revisit the past and reflect on new insights to help appreciate and understand the HIV movements in areas where it is often overlooked. While today‚Äôs youth will never truly understand the AIDS crisis of the 80s and 90s; together we can use this workshop to practice empathy while learning technical skills and the importance of using kitchen safety.

All supplies are covered and you get to take your jar of deliciousness home with you.

This free workshop is for LGBTQI youth. 

We have room for 10 Participants, you must register on Eventbrite to attend: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/turnip-time-machine-direct-action-and-food-preserves-workshop-tickets-38648609030
