Event Details

The Beniba Centre, The Glasgow Women’s Library and The Necessary Space are pleased to present Unsweetened Conversations (bush) Tea Services, a collaborative, interdisciplinary conversationThis fluid exchange, moderated by Dr. Peggy Brunache (Haiti/USA/Scotland), was with Barbados-based visual artist Annalee Davis, Glasgow-based artist Ashanti Harris (Scotland/Guyana), and the husband-wife team behind The Artisan Grower – Robert and Michelle Sullivan (Aruba/Grenada/Haiti/Ireland/Scotland). During the dynamic debate, Davis served (bush) tea made collaboratively with Heritage Teas of Barbados. Called Ancestral Voices, it combines breadfruit, mint and leaves with turmeric.

We look forward to welcoming you to this vital exchange of curious minds!
