Stockholm Resilience Centre hosts a three-day free entry food festival 8-10 June 2016
Between 8-10 June, Stockholm Resilience Centre will merge with the Food (R)evolution exhibition to become a public art installation blurring the boundaries between art, food and cutting-edge science.
Food (R)evolution is an exhibition exploring the changing face of Africa’s food systems. The exhibit includes photographs by international photographers and four short films. It explores themes of; the daily diets of people all around the globe, urban food systems in Africa, politics and power of food systems, climat change, nutrition and seeds, the origins of food.
In addition, the three day programme will bring together researchers and practitioners from South Africa and Sweden in a series of public workshops and lectures focussed on ensuring a brighter global food future for people and planet.
