Cancelled: Who Feeds Delhi — What Does Delhi Eat?

Delhi, SPACE10 Delhi 18:00 - 21:00 IST 19.03.20

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 Delhi’s food identities.

As a global megapolis, roughly 25 million meals are eaten in Delhi everyday. A variety of people including immigrants, refugees, and expats call Delhi home. With such bustling contrasts, how does Delhi’s food identity emerge?

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