Event description

Description

February 2nd, 3rd, and 4th - The Concordia Food Coalition invites you to participate in our 5th annual Transitions conference, 3 days dedicated to urban agriculture, food security, and sustainability.

Join us as we explore, engage, and experiment with ways to transform our campus food services to create local food systems that are socially, environmentally, and economically just.

This conference is held in spaces that are wheelchair accessible, but unfortunately Guy-Concordia Metro is not, please let us know if this poses a problem for you to attend.

Signs will be posted for gender neutral washrooms at the time of the event. Be a darling, ask new friends their pronouns <3

Tickets are SUGGESTED PRICES -- no one is turned away from attending for lack of funds.

OPENING KITCHEN & GALA
Spaces Limited, Registration Required

Duration: 2.5hrs
Location: 2090 Rue Mackay
Time: 16:00 - 18:30

For our Opening Kitchen, we’ve invited an aspiring local Chef to lead participants in preparing a unique menu inspired by local, seasonal, and reclaimed food. Conversations guided by Sustainable Concordia will encourage our sous-chefs (that’s you!) to question where our food comes from and the implications of the industrial meat and agriculture industries on our global climate and communities.

Low waste event. The menu prepared in the Opening Kitchen will be served at the Gala.

Still time to apply for the chef position: https://www.facebook.com/events/151960062019082/

GALA - PLAY W/ YOUR FOOD - An Eating Experiment

Duration: 2hrs
Location: TBA
Time: 18:30 - 20:30

Touch, smell, taste, share, play with your food! Why?
Because we can.
Because we should.
Because reconnecting with the food we eat can change the world.

A temporary sensory environment has been designed to stimulate your memories of food, to question our relationships to food & waste, and posit solutions for a sustainable future. The menu is a seasonal, locally sourced or reclaimed, multi-course adventure prepared by an aspiring local chef and a team of volunteers, just for us, just for tonight.

Participants are asked to come prepared to engage with each other and maybe get messy. Together, we decide the direction of the evening.

Welcome to dinner, this serving will be unconventional.
Special drinks will be served.

Opening Talk by Rhona Richman Kenneally.
Live DJ set by Function Creep
