About Civic Canteen

40 John St, G1 1JQ (behind City Chambers)

Civic Canteen is a celebratory and provocative programme exploring food and nourishment as one of the uniting forces in life. Regardless of how old we are or where we are from, the universal truth is that everyone needs to eat!

Different workshops take place each day and all events are free to attend, so come along, join the discussion, challenge your preconceptions, and leave knowing how to make delicious food from all corners of the globe!

Civic Canteen is proudly supported by Fáilte Foods.

While Having Soup
ATSA
9-12 Aug, 12:00–15:00
While Having Soup is a free 'three course dialogue'. Artists and local volunteers play the role of Maître d’ at this special restaurant, welcoming the public to savour a thought-provoking, confidential conversation with a stranger over a bowl of soup.

Together they will create their poetic portrait, which will be recorded and will join thousands of others from around the world. With a conversation menu crafted just for Glasgow, we invite you to participate in feeding the encounter and adding to the conversation. Perhaps if we talk more, listen better, then necessary change can happen.

ATSA, When Art Takes Action is supported by Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec.
