Cancelled: Who Feeds Delhi — Imagining Delhi 2050

Delhi, SPACE10 Delhi 13:00 - 18:00 IST 21.03.20

We’ve decided to play our part in reducing risk from Coronavirus (COVID-19), and cancel all of our events taking place before April 13 in both Copenhagen and Delhi. For now, stay home and remember to wash your hands. We will keep you updated about our program and spaces reopening on our website, social media, and newsletter. We hope to see you back here soon.

Together with MOLD and Edible Issues, we explore the future of food in Delhi.

In ten years, the population in Delhi is expected to cross 35 million and food demand is expected to rise two-folds. Simultaneously, Delhi is losing its farmlands at a rate of 3% annually due to rapid urbanisation. How can we design a paradigm that allows for a new relationship between food, land, and consumers? With fires from agricultural lands being a major contributor to Delhi’s pollution levels, how might food be the thread for addressing urban crises and environmental uncertainty?

Who Feeds Delhi? is part of a year-long global design research project conducted by MOLD around the question Who Feeds the City? to gather insight on contemporary practices around food production, procurement and preparation that strengthen hyperlocal food ecologies.

Join us for talks and a hands-on workshop, as we create a set of artefacts that help us imagine different futures around how we produce, procure and prepare our food.

We close Who Feeds Delhi? with an optional ticketed fundraising dinner at Fig & Maple with Radhika Khandelwal with all proceeds going towards Robin Hood Army. More details TBA.
