This event's theme is more of a question: The future of food - what's in store for us? This is pretty big question that we ask ourselves each year. Some trends we've seen happening in recent years are the rise of veganism and flexitarian diets, street food, non-alcoholic drinks, food markets, superfoods and many more. What do you think we will see appear this year, in the next 5 years and even the next 10 years?! Come along to discuss & find out!
We are partnering with a funky space: Make Town in Hackney (a few mins walk from Hackney Central Overground). This lovely space is a textiles & craft studio and most importantly "a central hive of buzzing creativity, focused on inspiring and guiding you through your personal journey of making."
Hannah Smith is a UX designer as well as a zero waste and sustainability enthusiast. She will be discussing how we could look to Britain's wartime past to solve our future food issues.
Hannah Thomas is the mind behind Herbs & Wild, focusing on herby, foraged, fermented and flavourful ingredients (mostly British too). She will be talking about the art of preserving, foraging in the UK, and what trends she thinks will disappear or appear.
Inês Neto dos Santos is a multi-disciplinary artist, born in Lisbon (1992) and based in London – where she completed an MA in Visual Communication at Royal College of Art (2016) and a BA in Graphic and Media Design and Illustration at London College of Communication (2013).
