Edible Cities Edinburgh Workshop Series

MFA candidate Allison Palenske will be coordinating an interdisciplinary workshop series in Tent Gallery this coming February. The event, entitled Edible Cities Edinburgh, will bring together university students, researchers and community members in a productive and creative context to discuss Edinburgh’s food culture and the potential for the city’s food system. Ideas from the event will act as a catalyst for future collaboration between the many local food projects across the city, and will be included in the Urbane exhibition running in congruence to the workshop series.

Edible Cities Edinburgh is free and open to all, but please register!
