Round table Mesimeriano

Adapting Sandra Teitge’s long-running Dinner Exchange as a platform and in collaboration with Christina Green, a discursive round table will join this culinary event with invited guests including Spiros Pengas –Consultant for Tourism and International Relations for Thessaloniki, writer Leon A. Nar, artists Atalya Laufer and Persefoni Myrtsiou, and Georgos Ieropoulos. In an open format the speakers and public will share food as well as thoughts on the current situation of tourism and cultural diversity in Thessaloniki while alluding to the issues of import and export as well as the locality and regionality of food. – The culinary project Dinner Exchange was founded in October 2011 and aims at creating discursive situations in various environments whilst always addressing the issue of food waste.

Hosted by the Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki.
