Who will grow our food in the future? What new foods will be on the market in 20 years time? Will 3D printers be a common kitchen appliance? How will technology disrupt the restaurant business? And, perhaps more importantly, will all these changes be healthy for ourselves and the environment?

You are invited to take part in a collaborative workshop to consider the future of food. During a two hour workshop we will speculate on the technological, social and cultural developments that are likely to influence our relationship with food. Through creative extrapolation, it will then be your job to create and visualise new food-based scenarios and worlds.

Report Launch

Venue
The Old Hairdresser’s (1st Floor Gallery), 27 Renfield Lane, Glasgow G2 6PH

Can Scotland’s relationship with consumption change? Is consumerism just an issue of individual behaviour, or does it have its roots in our political and economic systems? What can the Scottish Government do about hyper-consumption and its negative effects on society and the environment?

Think-and-do tank the Common Weal has joined forces with The University of Glasgow and Heriot-Watt University to launch a new report, ‘From “I” to “We”: Changing Scotland’s Relationship with Consumption’, which looks at all these issues and more. This launch event will be a chance to hear from the authors, ask questions and provide your own answers about Scotland’s relationship with consumption.

The report will be accessible on allofusfirst.org from Thursday 3 December.

The Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund (RRAAF) is a new and autonomous alternative funding scheme initiated by artist Ellie Harrison. Once set up, RRAAF will use a wind turbine to generate energy to fund a ‘no strings attached’ grant scheme for art-activist projects in the UK.

This event outside Mono is one of a series of ‘publicity stunts’ around Glasgow in December featuring the RRAAF Mascot, creating awareness for the project and its Kickstarter fundraising campaign. These culminate in the Launch Event at the CCA on Thursday 17 December 2015, 18:30 – 20:00 featuring presentations by Ellie Harrison and Georgy Davis from Community Energy Scotland outlining their plans for making the RRAAF project a reality in the coming years.

The Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund is being developed by artist Ellie Harrison with support from Beaconsfield London & CCA Glasgow. The 2015 launch events take place in London and Glasgow as part of ArtCOP21, The Only Way is Ethics & ArtCOP Scotland. The RRAAF identity is by Neil McGuire.

Urban Political Movements & Solidarity Networks from Thessaloniki to Glasgow

Lunchtime Lecture #2
Speaker: Lazaros Karaloitas, School of Geographical & Earth Sciences, University of Glasgow

Venue
The Old Hairdresser’s (Ground Floor Bar), 27 Renfield Lane, Glasgow G2 6PH
Free

Many cities in the global north are undergoing profound transformations since the outbreak of a more-than-economic crisis. On the one hand, the dominant political narrative promotes devastating austerity policies supported by an increasingly aggressive policing of public spaces and political disagreement. On the other hand, our cities are also the melting pot for a multi-faceted collection of progressive alternatives to austerity economics. This lecture will engage with this latter process. Grounding its analysis on the city of Thessaloniki, Greece it will explore numerous forms of urban emancipatory politics in times of crisis.

Thessaloniki’s contemporary landscape is the crucible for a profusion of emancipatory political experiments: from neighborhood assemblies, through social health clinics, to co-operatives and self-management efforts. Such diverse experiments are politicising everyday life in the city. While decidedly localised they articulate multiple links with other movements forming solidarity networks across Greece and beyond. This lecture will seek to trace the everyday political ethos that is forged through them and consider some of the possibilities, challenges and limitations that they open up for emancipatory politics. This discussion will, in turn, serve as an entry point to discuss urban grassroots politics in Glasgow and explore the similarities, differences as well as potential solidarities across diverse urban landscapes.
