The Quarantine Supper Club
April 16, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
This event has now passed
Three courses and conversation, live to your living room.
Sharing food has been how humans have connected with each other for centuries — and that hasn’t changed just because we’re physically separated from each other. Join Kindred in discussion over dinner with three changemakers changing the narrative in their fields.
Community is at the heart of everything we do at Kindred, and until we’re able to open our doors again, we’ve reimagined what a Supper Club looks like from quarantine. Human connection is more important than ever, and through this event we hope to lift up our community’s spirits by reminding them that good things are still happening.
Each guest will prepare their own three-course meal beforehand, which we’ll eat together as we hear from each of our speakers. There will be a short break in between each course to give everyone a moment to get their next plate ready.

About our speakers
Iain is part of the team at Fairytales Retold, a company that retells traditional fairy tales into empowering narratives — rather than relying on tired patriarchal stereotypes that all princesses need saving and that their most important characteristic is their beauty.
Iain will be speaking about Fairytales Retold’s modern retelling of Snow White, remote working, and how we can keep offline communities together online. You can learn more about his work at
www.fairytales-retold.com, or by following @fairytalesretold on Instagram.
Monica is the Founder and Editor of The Femedic, a research and media platform for women’s health. The Femedic analyses digital women’s health content to identify where it is effective, how it is failing, and how it needs to change.
Monica will be speaking about media coverage of COVID-19 and how impactful digital content can be where it comes to our health. Her research asks: what are the themes in how COVID-19 and public health and safety have been covered? What are the impacts of this on readers, for our mental and physical health? You can learn more about The Femedic on their website or by following @thefemedic on Instagram and Twitter.
Linda is the co-founder of Sunny Jar Eco Hub, a social enterprise who aspire to make low-waste living easy and accessible for all. They are on a mission to get Londoners to rethink their waste, reusing what they’ve got, and upcycling.
As well as speaking about Sunny Jar Eco Hub’s mission and why it was started, Linda will give an introduction to low-waste living and why it’s so important, with a focus on how it can be useful in these current times. For example, having reusables — i.e. nappies, menstrual products, cloth hankies, and more — means having to do less shopping trips.
