Interested in theatre, food, health, and the future of the planet? Join the Wellcome Trust at their event Chew It Over! at the Masonic Hall on 7 May and 2 July for two events combining all of the above – attend both, and you’ll get £100 for your troubles!
Join Chew It Over! on a voyage of discovery, starting from our current issues and views, progressing to plausible futures. The event centres around Look Left Look Right’s new play ‘What we talk about, when we talk about food.’ The play explores food from all angles, from examining how we make consumer choices to growing algae in schools. Don’t worry, no acting or role play will be required!
The event will feature experts in the field such as John Ingram, University of Oxford and Barbara Gallani Director from the Food and Drink Federation. They’ll be supporting discussions and offering views from the research and policy community. Insights from these discussions will be gathered for use in policy influencing and research. YOUR TWO PENCE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, PEOPLE!
During the event you will be opportunities to share your views and encouraged to think more deeply about how we produce, distribute, consume, store and dispose of our food.
It’s an immersive, theatrical experience where participants are invited to view a new play by awarding winning Look Left Look Right theatre group. The production is emotional and provocative, fuelling exciting discussions. We look at food in terms of its cultural elements, scientific ecology and what drives choices, as well as many other angles!
Chew it Over takes place over two days, 7 May (Act 1) and 2 July (Act 2). The days run from 10am – 4pm. The event is free and lunch and refreshments throughout the two days are provided. Spaces are limited, so be sure to sign-up now!
And as if influencing future policy on food and our planet aren’t enough, participants will get £100 for attending both Acts!
