Eat The City – Greenskills Sustainable Living Festival

There are only nine meals between mankind and anarchy.  — Alfred Lewis.

Has it ever crossed your mind how much trouble we’d be in if we couldn’t get food from the supermarket?

We invite you to participate in a provocative lock-in workshop centred upon the fictional (but entirely possible) premise that the food supply chain to the Great Southern region has broken down. The workshop will creatively and playfully explore local community responses to a hypothetical food crisis.

About the workshop:

As part of the Sustainable Living Festival and sponsored by Vancouver Arts Centre and Sustain: The Australian Food Network, Eat the City will be holding a lock-in workshop for 60 participants. The workshop will take place from 9.30am – 5.30pm on 23 March 2018 at the Albany Town Hall Theatre (catering provided). The workshop will focus on the potential for, and consequences of, a food supply chain crisis in the Great Southern region. 

We will be using game play as a way to connect with the problems raised by the fictional food crisis, and ask participants to engage in a process of identifying problems, developing solutions, and proposing measures to build resilience. As well as generating awareness of food precarity, the workshop aims to encourage communication across organisations, communities and cultures, and to highlight local knowledge, skills, and resources.

Tickets on sale now! Book in today to avoid disappointment.
