Valentines Mansion: A Local Dialogue Tea Parties
We hosted a series of 6 international tea parties as part of the project A Local Dialogue at Valentines Mansion. Each tea party served a different type of tea with a set topic of conversation about the local area/ history. During the tea parties, we collected stories, memories, experiences of the local area and Valentines Mansion. This was collated in the form of an online blog, audio installation and exhibition at the venue.
