Manifesta 12 Cook and Talk is a series of informal events part of the cultural programme Aspettando Manifesta 12 currently on view at Teatro Garibaldi, Palermo. The events consist in a dinner held at Teatro Garibaldi by Manifesta 12 team, and open to all the people in Palermo who would like to help cooking while talking with the team on various topics.

With the ‘Cook and Talk’ series, Manifesta 12 aims to introduce the members of the team and to collect questions and opinions people have about Manifesta, and to respond in a personal, informal dialogue. Also, the Manifesta 12 Cook and Talk events can also be made by those artists and professionals that Manifesta 12 invites to actively work in the city, and that already collaborate with its citizens.

If people are interested in submitting their questions to Manifesta 12 team, they can send these via email or by commenting on the event page of Manifesta Biennial Facebook account using the hashtag #M12CookAndTalk. Their questions will then become the starting point of the discussion developed while cooking in Teatro Garibaldi.
