For Starters

3 March 2022

‘For starters’ supperclub was an intimate evening of shared food and arousing conversation hosted by Dr Gemma Commane.

Gemma is part of the collective visionaries behind Bean Flicks Festival (Birmingham’s 1st ethical, feminist, queer & kink-positive porn festival) and the author of Bad Girls, Dirty Bodies: Sex, Performance and Safe Femininity, published by Bloomsbury (April 2022).

Artworks and objects by some incredible local artists were included in this supperclub. Gulp’s founder Kaye Winwood reimagined their use in the service and table decor throughout the evening. A ‘menu’ of artworks was also available to buy. Artists include Sarah Taylor-Silverwood, Leah Carless, Sian Tonkin and Nuala Clooney & Kaye Winwood.

Food was made for sharing, with an edible landscape, enabling uninterrupted conversation to flow.
