Gastronomic Design Festival

A summer programme that moves between different disciplines focusing on our food culture. We present our first set of events that will activate our minds and senses, discovering how artistic strategies contribute to the discussion of the politics of food.

What does our food heritage look like and what is its significance in a time when our city becomes more diverse? Food can often be the first step into a culture and by working in collaboration with various designers, artists and chefs, we’ve arranged a festival that eats through different cultures.

Together we will discuss the politics of food and ask questions of how artistic strategies can contribute to the discussion of cultural heritage, migration and the political dimension of gastronomy. But mainly it’s all about having fun and eating good food!
