This research explores co-creating spaces for pedagogy about Place by investigating how temporary architecture can play a crucial role in transforming social interactions into political and aesthetic experiences for knowledge exchange in contemporary art.

Temporary architecture is explored as a framing device functioning in delineating space that is co-created for place-based learning over food that prioritises First Nations knowledge systems and marginalised voices. This research seeks to demonstrate that this form of art practice, can deepen engagement with Place by producing a dialogical relationship and relationality between people, Place and practice through a situated experience.
