A special assembly session where we will work together to preserve food, create jars of loveliness and talk about our experiences of collaboration.

JARSQUAD brings people together through communal food-preservation, to practice sharing ingredients, recipes, and know-how by making jams and preserves as a ‘squad’. Each session focuses on making use of seasonal and local produce that might otherwise go to waste.

No experience necessary, just a willingness to get involved & chip in with some fruit prep and cooking.

Everyone is welcome; the investigation is designed for members of organisations and community groups based in Plymouth but we would love to hear from anyone with experience of collaboration. You do not have to be a member of the POP members network.

JARSQUAD operates under their own exchange rate, where you will be able to trade each half an hour of food prep for a jar of preserves at the end of your session. Meaning you will be taking home some delicious food.

The Creative Sessions are a follow up to the POP Collaboration Investigation survey, which is a part of a wider piece of creative research with aims to find out how organisations and groups in the POP network, and across Plymouth in general, use collaboration as part of their work, what their relationships to working together are and even how they define ‘collaboration’.

These sessions will give us an opportunity to bring groups of people from different groups and organisations together to have deeper conversations whilst enjoying some fun and creative activities. These sessions include print-making with Caroline Wilkins, preserving and making food with Jar Squad and some fun activities with Far Flung Dance Company. We would love you to join us for a session of your choice, but you are very welcome to attend more than one, if you like.
