Food Cultures: A Food Plan

Date: Saturday 10th June
Time: 2 -5pm
Venue: Focal Point Gallery, Elmer Avenue, Southend-on-Sea, SS1 1NB

To what extent is the production and consumption of food central to how we experience the place we live in?

How is the food we eat related to wider economic, social and cultural policies?

Find out about local food initiatives and ethical alternatives to multi-national food companies.

Contribute to a discussion about how the future of our food cultures might be changed for the better.

Come and join Club Critical Theory and our special guests for an event all about our food cultures.

There will be talks, discussion, free local food and drink, and a chance to feed into a Food Plan for Southend.
