An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday 9th March 2019 – Sunday 10th March 2019
Prague, Czech Republic

Forming a fascinating, complex and diverse foundation for communities across the world, the needs, rituals and practices related to food and drink open up important insights and perspectives on who we are, how we live and the ways in which we have and continue to come together.
