The second Low Food gathering will take place on 4 July Vuurtoreneiland, the Netherlands. Participants will be invited for a day of great stories, speakers and delicious food.
Following the success of the Low Food Symposium that was organised in the Amsterdam in January, the Low Food Session is a one day gathering which will bring internationally respected speakers and food that showcases the best of Low Food.
Low Food is an initiative of Joris Bijdendijk, Joris Lohman and Samuel Levie. Low Food is an open platform for new ideas and insights. Low Food believes that food culture lies not in the past but in the future.
LowFoodSession will be a one day gathering with internationally respected speakers and food that showcases the best of Low Food. The event will focus on the hand that feeds you and how diversity is vital for the future of food. “We want to ask the question whether a genuinely forward-thinking culinary movement can exist if it doesn’t embrace human diversity at its heart,” said the organisers.
The Low Food symposium was the start of an exploration of what is ‘low food’ and what makes it different from other food movements. “What are its strengths and weaknesses? How can it be shaped and what can we do to enrich our food culture and food systems in an inclusive and open way.”
The organisers said that they sent the Low Food 19 participants with a lot of thoughts and questions asking them to come back with more ideas and some answers. This will be the first in a series of micro sympoia in a series that will take the series further leading the organisers to Low Food 2020.
The list of speakers has not yet been announced but the organisers have confirmed that one of the speakers will be Margot Janse and the event will be co-hosted by Oliver Rowe.
