Join Kate Rich—founder of grocery business and public experiment Feral Trade—in conversation with designer, writer and architect Rory Hyde.

Linking their discussion to MPavilion’s November theme ‘Island Life’—a theme that considers the literal places and figurative spaces that exist between others—Kate and Rory will talk about the groundbreaking ways that Feral Trade is challenging capitalist economies with the joyfully subversive trading of goods, ‘passed by hand’.

*Please note: this forms part of our online program. All talks are available as podcasts via our library after the premiere date. 

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
