As part of the attendant programme for the Modes of Democracy exhibition, we have prepared a community project in cooperation with the Prazelenina civic association where you will have the opportunity to bake a "homemade" bread in a special oven built for the project.
The participants will meet in the DOX Centre for Saturdays workshops in baking "homemade" bread in a manually built oven. In the morning you will learn how to make a dough and from 4 pm you will bake your own loaf. There must be at least one participant per loaf, but you can also bake in pairs or small group. While the bread rises, you can visit exhibitions in the gallery, or the Two faces of bread (Chleba o dvou kůrkách) art workshop for families from 2 pm.
The Prazelenina Civic Association brings you an inspiring story that takes place on a basic civic level about how, during one growing season, over ten people from the local community became bakers of homemade bread, inventors of new recipes, and cultivators of sourdough starter. Why do they bake bread? Come ask them, and bake with them!
