Join us for an illustrated talk as part of the Basic Talks programme.

Join us for a talk with artist Jennie Moran,an artist who uses the philosophy, culture, and infrastructure of hospitality to create opportunities for shared connection.

Jennie Moran started a nomadic hospitality project called Luncheonette in 2013 which operated as the canteen in the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, and was named Irish Café of the year at the 2019 Food and Wine Awards. In 2022 Luncheonette was invited to Artsadmin in London, to take part in a hospitality themed research residency and consultancy project called Say Yes to Who or What Turns Up, using an old café as a site of unconditional welcome. She has just completed a Masters in Gastronomy and Food Studies at TUD and has written a book entitled How to Soften Corners about the impact of hospitality in institutions. Her research into practical applications of hospitality has been supported with a bursary from the Arts Council of Ireland. She provides mentorship in holistic hospitality to creative organisations and runs a module called Creative Hospitality in NCAD, and lectures occasionally UCD School of Architecture, Cork Centre for Architectural Education (UCC) and TUD. She has presented at the Oxford Food Symposium and is a chair at the upcoming Dublin Gastronomy Symposium.
