EVENT: Visiting the University College Dublin

October 2023
Dublin, Ireland

The training in Food as Medicine took place in University College Dublin over three days (04-06th October 2023) with 10 artists of the first art-technology experiment. The training included explanatory sessions to introduce the topic, information sessions to explore the research environment related to “Food and Medicine”, interactive meetings and individual time slots to reflect. Through activities such as tracking their own diet and participating in the sensory evaluation of food, the artists had a deep dive into key aspects of food and health research. Interactive sessions with researchers to discuss their work spanning from soil to health enabled a broad understanding of key challenges in food and health research.
