On behalf of The New School, the International Food Design Society, and Food Design North America, we are thrilled to announce the Second International Conference on Food Design, which will take place on November 5-7, 2015, at The New School in New York City.
In line with the successful First International Conference on Designing Food and Designing For Food (London 2012), this second conference wants to create another opportunity for the presentation and discussion of fundamental aspects of Food Design. We consider Food Design as the process aiming to modify, improve, and optimize individual and communal relationships with and around food in the most diverse ways and instances (food products, materials, objects, practices, processes, events, environments, services, systems, etc.). Professionals, practitioners, and researchers will share reflections, projects, and experiences to assess the development of this new burgeoning field.
On November 5th, a symposium on Food Design Education will precede the conference proper. Issues regarding pedagogy and teaching methodologies in food design will be at the forefront.
