This hands-on workshop will use the backdrop of the Fantastic Voyage exhibition to explore the history of the Green Revolution and the rise of industrial food production. We will take a closer look at how food has migrated from a source of health and wellness to a co-opted capitalist tool designed to create a dependency on (and some would say addiction to) processed foods and all of its sugar, salt, and fat configurations.

Participants will learn how to make a hibiscus sports drink as an example of regaining a comprehensive understanding of food for sale versus the food we grow and/or prepare ourselves.

This workshop is offered as part of the Fantastic Voyage exhibition by artists Stefani Bardin and Assaf Tamir. The immersive installation explores the role of food production in our personal health and the health of the environment.
