Future Food Salons


Voyage to Anthropocene 2018–20

The Future Food SalonS explore AND CELEBRATE what we will be eating in the future.

Future Food Salons are collaborative happenings hosted by Alimentary's Aruna Antonella Handa with members of the Future Food Salon Group and local partners. Bringing together artists, scientists, inventors, makers, farmers, chefs and surprises, the Salons welcome everyone curious about what we might be eating in the future.

Too much discussion about the future of food focuses on doom and gloom. The Future Food Salons are designed to lay the foundation for collaborating, identifying, disseminating and celebrating innovative options for feeding future generations.

VOYAGE TO THE ANTHROPOCENE: FUTURE FOOD SALON 3
The Future Food Salons welcome us to the Anthropocene. Humankind has now become the greatest geological force on Planet Earth. Though the signs can be read as markers of despair, the Salon encourages a vision of opportunity, of hope, of challenge to inspire us to break free of our dependence on destructive materials and invent ways to showcase the very best of humankind in the Anthropocene.

Fungi including mushrooms, yeasts, moulds and smuts is the featured ingredient with algae, insects playing supporting roles.

Everything (or nearly) will be alive: live music composed for this salon, fungi textiles, fungi art, living sculpture, live canapés of future foods, live cocktails and more.
