Lisbon 2018

Categories No Categories

Food and Drink in the 21st century have become far more than simply sustenance and succour. As cooking shows, slow-food movements, culinary adventure travel and rallies around national or regional ingredients have become common-place in some areas of the world, in others food anxiety, scarcity, and quality have suffered. While these opposing forces surrounding food and drink are not necessarily correlative, they are all indicative of the vital importance of food in our lives today. Food and drink have become so much more than simply or even only about keeping us alive and now they entail, encompass, and engender a wider range of intertwining meanings and possibilities.

Our goal at the Progressive Connexions Global International Food and Drink Event in Lisbon is to address those meanings and possibilities from a range of perspectives including presentations, performances, demonstrations, round-table discussions, walking/eating/drinking tours, and more in a context in which all aspects of food and drink are open for examination. We have chosen Lisbon as our event location for its long and rich traditions around food and drink, and for its unique, international appeal to those seeking new tastes and new cultural adventures.
