As the pilot of the broader Foodways project, Foodways Darmstadt mobilized dozens of stakeholders in the food systems of a small city in southern Germany. The project was hosted by curator Ute Ritschel as part of a residency at the Waldkunszentrum in association with Verein fur Internationale Waldkunst, KunstTREFFpunkt, and Vogelfrei.


These posts about the project provide:

1. An Overview - what the project is about and how we got started in Darmstadt

2. Thanks/Credits - a narrative about collaboration, rather than just a list of "who made Foodways Darmstadt?"

3. Reflections - the beginnings of an essay about what we're learning from the work

On this distributed symposium, participants moved around the area by foot, bike, tram, and car to dozens of sites of food production, distribution, and consumption. At each site, there was a brief talk or some kind of information exchange, followed by some kind of snack. Detailed descriptions can be found on our blog.
