Smell has the special capacity to take us right back to our childhood. From Banks’s brewery’s hoppy stink to spicy curry, Snidge Scrumpin’ maps the smells that belong to the Black Country. We invite locals to take part in an experiment that maps regional smells and tastes. Participants will be exposed to a number of different smells, and be asked to retrieve and describe memories. Snidge Scrumpin’ demonstrates the important of smell and taste for our sense of regional history and shows how place shapes us. The project collects the lost odours belonging to this post-industrial region whilst charting a new 21st century palate.
This special event is part of the Being Human Festival 2018 and is funded by the University of Wolverhampton’s Centre for Transnational and Transcultural Research, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the British Academy and the School of Advanced Studies, London.
The events are free but booking is required at https://beinghumanfestival.org
