A Delicious Place is a placemaking activity composed of a series of actions that were hosted at the Pame Kaimakli 2020 festival in Nicosia. The festival's main theme revolved around the topic of food as a socio-cultural, artistic and placemaking activity. Overall the festival*, initiated two, two-month long workshops, three theatrical performances, two film screenings, two ethnographic audiovisual projects, a series of open-air dinners, neighborhood walks and a pop up short documentary festival around the role of food in the placemaking process.

Three video documentaries were produced as part of the A Delicious place actions, that documented community stories in relation to the topic of food. One of the video documentaries produced, follows the stories revealed through the workshops led by We circle Collective. We circle collective is heterogeneous collective undertaking social action through art projects, while tackling socio-political and ecological issues. 

The workshops aimed to connect residents of Kaimakli beyond prejudice or taboo. Through personalised, sensorial and artistic experience, participants had the opportunity to learn creative skills, engage with each other and recall memories. Persons of various cultural backgrounds and Kaimakli residents participated in a series of professional creative workshops that combine different artistic disciplines. 

The final output of the project led to a performative dinner presented by the workshop participants, with dishes, stories and performances from around the world.
