We’ve been reflecting on Act I and planning for Act II at a workshop in Newcastle upon Tyne. Please watch our video to find out about the first full year of Our Food (2012-2013) and get in touch if you are interested in working with us on improving the food system through dialogue.
On 19 April 2013 we put on the third performance of the Our Food play in London. Amy Mycock and Nicole Kenton report back from the St James Theatre.
The Our Food launch document can be downloaded here.
“Our Food – a drama” is a play about what is happening to our food, why, and what might be done It will be performed at the St James Theatre, London, at 11am on Friday 19 April 2013.
The play is the third performance in a pioneering research project examining how to create a more healthy and sustainable food system. The play builds on the findings of a series of discussions about people’s need for a healthy diet, and how this is influenced by economic and environmental pressures and often narrow research agendas.

Ruth Hayward reports back from the Oxford Real Farming Conference last month.
Early in January, I went along to the Oxford Real Farming Conference, set in the beautiful surroundings of Oxford. The conference is for people who think that it is possible to have good food for everyone forever, and to encourage fresh thinking on this; and that this can be done through an agriculture based on principles of sound biology.
