ANFP #2: Community economies in food systems: Tasting for difference at Cascoland
Time & location
We would like to invite you to our second ANFP meeting of season, on Wednesday November 17th, 16:00-17:30, at Cascoland. Many have argued that multiple environmental, political, and social dilemmas embedded in our current food systems result from the (globalized and industrialized) market economies that our food systems are embedded within. In this ANFP meeting, we build upon Gibson-Graham’s re-framing of economic practices to explore different ways to value food – based on social networks and care, rather than a commodity to be bought and sold. How can we transform food systems, to be more sustainable, through changing the relations in which we know and value food?
It is therefore appropriate to skip the Zoom PowerPoints for this meeting and, instead, explore our food systems with ALL our senses. We will host this November meeting at Cascoland for a Tasting. Tastings are a new project hosted by the initiative to help explore the multiple dimensions of food. Cascoland works with their local neighborhood in Amsterdam West to explore the value embedded in food, and in the process, tell stories rooted in community. At this week’s Tasting, ANFP will work with Cascoland to explore how community economies are embedded in food systems and how we can re-frame or re-value our food practices to be based on community care.
Please join us Wednesday November 17th, 16:00 – 17:30 at Moerkerkenstraat 83, 1064HC Amsterdam.
