Slavoj Zizek once said that it is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism. It seems that building an alternative food system is trapped in the same conundrum. However, we can help our imagination by juxtaposing the current organization with the way ancestral tribes and populations have organized their food provision. I will invite sharing and reflection on our personal habits regarding consumption, our conditioning around food, and how they are shaped by the system. I will also show some examples of self-organizing around food. All this to understand ourselves better through understanding the context that we live in, tolerate, and perpetuate daily.
This is a personal growth workshop suitable for anyone, no experience required. The atmosphere is cozy and informal.
Donations are welcome if you feel called (cash or online transfer after the workshop). Making my work accessible to people is both my dream and my commitment and you can help me on this path.
