Conversations in the city

Community -

In the mid of winter, foodies, farmers and curious consumers gathered to debate, converse and present on the issues and triumphs of our local food system.

The panel sessions, Q&As and debates took place at Town Hall, Launceston as part of the inaugural agriCULTURED event—part of the bid for Launceston to be designated as a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy.

Taking place from 5 – 8 August 2021, agriCULTURED was an exciting new opportunity for Tasmanians to connect with agri-food industry professionals and practitioners to innovate, learn, and be inspired to evolve, build a platform for advocacy, and challenge norms and the status quo.

In partnership with The University of Tasmania, the Eat Well Team facilitated a series of conversations focused on food security—what do the issues of food security look like across Tasmania, and what are the solutions?

Joining us for the discussions was a stellar cast of food system, policy and program experts: Holley Jones Public Health Services; Nick Rose, Sustain Australia; Leah Galvin, Local Procurement Consultant; Julie Dunbabin, School Food Matters; Dannielle Watkins, Growaverley; Trish O’Duffy and Nettie Burr, Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania; Andrew Hillier, Loaves & Fishes.
