East End Jam

East End Jam is an ongoing artwork that celebrates the unexpected fruitfulness of the urban environment. Through walking, foraging, picking and preserving it instigates an active, activist and creative way to interact with a place in relation to its edibility. The project addresses challenges resulting from the UK context of austerity politics, including food poverty, access to green spaces and social isolation. The work intersects with pressing issues surrounding food systems, including the climate crisis.
