In partnership with architects DLA Design and the Cambridge University Land Society, Borough Market brings to you a fascinating evening of discussion and debate.
How has food production, distribution, storage, preparation, consumption, waste and culture changed London’s built environment? How has London changed food? What does the future hold?
Carolyn Steel - architect, lecturer and writer who has combined architectural practice with teaching and research into the relationship between food and cities, running design studios at the LSE, London Metropolitan University and at the Cambridge University School of Architecture.
Kate Hofman – CEO and co-founder of GrowUp Urban Farms, which produces sustainable fresh fish, salads and herbs in cities using a combination of aquaponic and vertical growing techniques.
Joanna Lewis – Trustee of the Food Ethics Council and Strategy and Policy Director for Soil Association Food for Life, an award-winning national programme which is about making good food the easy choice for everyone, whoever and wherever they are.
Donald Hyslop – Chair of Borough Market and Head of Regeneration and Community Partnerships at TATE. His work involves building new audiences for the museum, often in marginalised and excluded communities. He is also Chair of Better Bankside, the business-led regeneration body for SE1.
Moderator: Tim Lang - Professor of Food Policy at City University London’s Centre for Food Policy. He is a writer of numerous articles, reports and books on the politics of food production and served as a trustee of Borough Market, 2007-17.
The discussion will last for around 60 minutes with time at the end for questions and comments from the audience. A superb spread of food and drink will be available after the talks, provided by Borough Market traders, all of which is included in the ticket price.
