Group 34

LiveWires will design an outdoor community food hub and activities centre for residents of Moss Side and Hulme to provide Covid safe interactions, where people can come together as a community to cook, grow and learn about food. Through Social Media we will create a community forum where members of the community can work together with us and The Work House Project.

We are excited to be working with the Workhouse project, founded by Eva Schlunke, Dominic Sagar and John Large. The core aim of this project is to establish a social media presence which serves as a community forum for exploring and understanding issues around housing and building community resilience.This should include looking at different types of need, aspirations, barriers, mistakes, agendas etc while keeping the focus on finding out what works (locally, nationally and internationally), and how successes can be replicated and implemented in Hulme and Moss Side.

Social agenda?

We want to unite the local community and eliminate social segregation through the use of food.

Our primary aim is to design a community food hub and activities centre for residents of Hulme and Moss side to provide covid safe interactions.

What will you do?

During the MSA live event you will help us to build a virtual community forum where members of the Work House Project and the community of Hulme and Moss Side will come together to learn more about food. You will have the opportunity to partake in live events such as cooking skills, talks from external collaborators and conversations with members of the community.

A ‘self build project’ the end goal is to design a food and activities hub. Working closely with this diverse community-the design of the hub will be tailored to benefit the needs identified through social mapping and collaboration exercises.

This project will enhance your graphical skills with the use of Photoshop and Indesign, as well as your drawing skills on Autocad and Sketch up. We aim to organise workshops and create an environment to encourage you to ask questions. This project is a great opportunity for you to learn how to conduct social mapping research, understand the local community needs and their dynamics, in order to design a gastronomic community space for the local people to gather and enjoy it. Architecture is about making places for people to enjoy, therefore the project will help you boost your communication skills and human understanding.
