Food creates the catalyst around which conversations can develop, relationships build, understanding and compassion enhance and action can be taken.
The self contained Splice BBQ trailer built with the assistance of Auckland Council has rolled into local events such as Neighbours Day, Matariki celebrations, Radio NFA (No Fixed Abode) street promotion, Koha Shed Christmas Parties, apartment get togethers, Big Sleepouts in Auckland and Rotorua, the Myers Park Medley, community mural painting.
The Splice BBQ trailer is often a critical aspect of delivering a wider community activity. On a cold August evening on Wellesley St West, the versatility of the BBQ trailer was displayed as it paired up with local musicians, chess players and people learning to knit.
Splice sees the BBQ as a vehicle to create connection for people living in apartments as part of Splice’s response to the known issue of isolation in the city.
