New Gastronomies: Arts, Food and Ecological Territories

Wednesday December the 8th
10am – 9pm
Cité internationale des Arts

18 rue de l’Hôtel de Ville, 75004

Organised by COAL, the LADYSS-CNRS and the Cité internationale des Arts

What culture-based solutions can artists provide today to transform food territories and imagine the sustainable food of tomorrow? New Gastronomies: Arts, Food and Ecological Territories, takes over the Cité internationale des Arts for a day of reflections and experiences around art and food.

On the menu: more than twenty workshops, culinary experiences, artistic performances, films and round tables bringing together artists, thinkers, farmers, peasants, scientists and cultural projects founders from Europe and elsewhere, gathered to discuss their practices and demonstrate the potential of solutions based on culture in the transformation of food territories.

This event closes two years of European cooperation in the frame of the Table and the Territory program, which brings together seven major players in the field of art, ecology and food under the coordination of COAL and scientific supervision of LADYSS-CNRS.

This program aims to produce knowledge and field experiments combining art, science and the involvement of local stakeholders in the field of sustainable food. At the start of 2022, they will give rise to the publication of a book, the result of research carried out within the framework of the The Table and the Territory program by Nathalie Blanc, director of the Centre des Politiques de la Terre and researcher at LADYSS-CNRS and Barbara Benish, researcher, artist and director of ArtDialogue.


Throughout the day, round tables around the topics of the Table and the Territory program bring together experts, artists, researchers and actors of artistic initiatives dealing with the issue of food and the transition of territories. Speakers from different European countries will share their local knowledge and experiences, specific to their territories.
