This event is SOLD OUT.

The Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) presents a panel discussion about technology and the contemporary food system.  Panelists will address key questions about the future of food, including:

  • Has the industrialization of our food supply been a blessing or a burden?
  • What role might design play in envisioning a future of food that is sustainable, equitable, nutritious, and “good” on all counts?
  • What role should technology play in our future food supply?
  • Are the industrial and artisanal mutually exclusive, and how might we imagine a new food ethic that incorporates the best elements of both?
