KIEMKRACHT FESTIVAL

Food Futures Festival
Ecopolis Gent & VIERNULVIER
  • Sat 09.03
    10:30 - 22:00
    De Vooruit

A day filled to the brim with talks, workshops, films, performances, tours, art installations and performances about food and the land on which it is produced.  In De Vooruit - but also on farms and at producers and restaurants.

 Voedsel Anders     Ecopolis    Stad Gent     Denktank Oikos 

Ecopolis, VIERNULVIER, the agro-ecological movement Voedsel Anders and the Ghent Food Council are working together to accelerate the social-ecological transition through culture, encounters and debate. Kiemkracht is a sequel to the agro-ecological festival of the same name of Voedsel Anders and at the same time the Ghent edition of Ecopolis, a festival that takes place in several cities and wants to accelerate the social-ecological transition through culture and encounters.

In a playful and accessible way, we let our audience think critically about their food and the land on which it is produced. In doing so, we especially stimulate the imagination and invite thinkers and doers. Farmers and artists. Scientists and chefs. Filmmakers and activists. And you.

How wonderful would it be to be able to eat good food with a good conscience?

Because admit it: how wonderful would it be to be able to eat good food with a good conscience? To be able to find meaning in an everyday meal without having to dismiss the reality of modern food production? That's why we are exploring a new, imaginative relationship with our food and land. We invent new stories to share and to experience. About soil restoration, good stewardship, how we can navigate through these dark times with a rich culture of cooking and togetherness. How we can use food to connect cultures in cities around the world, and within our own city. Our focus is not on the things that wring (abused animals, trucks roaring down our roads, poisoned oceans, ...) but on what we can accomplish as creative people.
