Event details

This event forms part of Coventry University's Festival of Social Science.

A half day workshop for shared learning, discussion and exploration. Standard ‘healthy eating’ messages teach a narrow focus on lifestyle change which diverts attention from the fact that the route to population wellbeing lies in anti-racist social change, not personal eating behaviours.

Mainstream narratives fail to meet at the cross-roads of food poverty, sustainability, racism, and health which means it can be hard to know how to translate our ideas on social justice into action.

In this interactive session we will explore how we can talk about food and nutrition in ways that help tackle racism, ableism, classism and fat shaming as part of a bigger conversation for anti-colonial, liberatory practice.

An interactive event for community food workers (including volunteers) and anyone interested in the topic.

Drinks and refreshments provided. Free, booking required.

Who's leading the event? 

Dr Lucy Aphramor, Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience, Coventry University


Adults, the workshop is for anyone involved in community food projects and anyone else interested in the topic.

*All children and young people (aged under 18) must be accompanied by an adult.
