Food & Climate Change: Growing a Cultural Movement

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs at
The New School and Marfa Dialogues/NY.

Food has powerful cultural meaning, and has increasingly become part of the growing ideological and political discussions around the planet’s changing climate. Food can help communities develop, sustain, and increase their viability while helping mitigate negative impacts of climate change. This cross-disciplinary brainstorming and dialogue will examine how sustainable, locally designed and developed solutions can help communities respond to the challenges of climate change. The discussion will focus on design and cultural interventions that reconnect people to food production while transforming the environment. This forum aims to spur discussion and action among farmers, urban community leaders and innovators, designers, artists, policymakers, scholars and others who are engaged in developing effective and imaginative responses to climate change.

A conversation with:
Linda Goode Bryant,
founding director, Project EATS
Nevin Cohen, assistant professor, Environmental Studies and Sustainability Management Program, The New School for Public Engagement
Molly O'Neill, longtime food writer, cookbook author and founder of cookNscribble and LongHouse Food Revival
Fabio Parasecoli, coordinator, Food Studies Program, The New School; author of Bite Me: Food in Popular Culture
Radhika Subramaniam, director + chief curator, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, Parsons The New School for Design
Joel Towers, executive dean, Parsons The New School for Design

Moderated by:
John Rudolph
, executive producer, Feet in 2 Worlds
