Event Description
Soul Plates: House of Lang Thang Cơm Gia Đình

Soul Plates invites the community to go deeper into the diverse flavors and traditions and that define us as cultures, communities and individuals by reflecting on soul food and our connection to food as a form of resistance, an act of joy, an expression of love, and deep down, a part of who we are.  Soul Plates is generously supported by ArtsWave, Kroger, the African American Chamber, and the Cincinnati Development Fund. 

In addition to an artist exhibition, six local chefs and culture bearer’s will partner to host intimate virtual meals and conversations each Wednesday in February. Each hosted dinner will feature prepared dishes inspired by  their cherished soul food memories paired with a playlist, and shared storytelling. 

Participants will pick up thier meals at the Annex Gallery of the Pendleton Arts Center each Wednesday before the event, with a chance to tour the exhibition. With the reservation of a ticket, participants will then also receive an email with a zoom link to join in on the conversation and shared storytelling from 7:45-8:45 pm the night of the event.
