Alisa Welby & Marie Alberto

Table Talk is a creative multi-disciplinary platform formed in collaboration with art director Marie Alberto. The platform explores food cultures and traditions through creative mediums such as photography and film, opening a dialogue to the different ways in which food ties closely to culture and identity, and how it ultimately brings people together.

The project was launched in October 2019 and involved pop-up cooking workshops, a lunch and dinner party sharing Japanese and Filipino cuisine to London students. Creative outcomes produced involved an editorial shoot in collaboration with the ceramicist Grace McCarthy, which featured the documentation of 5 migrants from Beijing, China, coming together at their dining table to cook and eat the food of their mother’s home land.

The platform also accepts film and photography submissions of day-to-day dining rituals and traditions.
