A city like Bristol, known for its vibrant foodie scene, has as many organisations working to improve the production, supply, cooking and eating of food as you'd expect. Maybe more.
When programme manager Rob Gregory and exhibitions and events curator Jodie Marks began pulling together the content for the first of the five City Ideas Studio exhibitions, they looked at global research from pioneers such as CJ Lim. They also spoke to plenty of well known Bristol organisations specialising in various aspects of food, and those operating well off the mainstream radar alike.
Here, we introduce you to the groups that are showcasing their work within the Food exhibition:
Lim is author of Food City. Published in 2014, the book addresses the frameworks of over 25 international cities through the medium of food and how the city is governed. It then explores how a secondary infrastructure could function as a living environmental and food system operating as a sustainable stratum over the city of London.
