From health professionals to foodies to artists, a room filled with ecologically open-minded individuals gathered at Evolution House to talk about what exactly art, food, and sustainability have to do with each other.
The discussion kicked off the Final Straw exhibition by ASN student Patrick Lydon, and his partner Suhee Kang. The exhibition contains in-progress works from the duo’s research and filming about natural farming in Japan and Korea over the past few years. It will be on display in TENT Gallery at Edinburgh College of Art through Friday, 29 November.
We’re very thankful for the participation of Final Straw panelists, Dr. Emily Brady (Professor of Environmental Philosophy at University of Edinburgh), Mike Small (Director of Fife Diet, Europe’s largest local food project), and Ben Twist (Director of Creative Carbon Scotland). Also, a special thank you to our panel chair Chris Fremantle, who lead the panel through largely uncharted territory last night, as three professionals from varied backgrounds came together for the first time to talk about sustainability and our re-connection with the natural world.
