Imagined as a way for older adults with barriers to accessing cultural activities due to long-term illnesses or disabilities to broaden their experiences and enjoy the pleasures of dining and travel without the need to leave their home or care setting to access them. 

The first Tabletop Travel prototype encapsulated the sounds, tastes and colours of India, with Kalpna Woolf (91 Ways) sharing her nutritious and delicious food, together with her unique and entertaining personal stories in her relaxed, warm and friendly style. The box was beautifully decorated by Ritu Sood. 

Tabletop Travels is now in a second phase of development where we are designing a more scalable experience. People will receive a box in the post with objects, food and stories from locations around the world. Our first location is Athens.
