The Australian Future Foods Lab

AFFL_logo-B+W

The Australian Future Foods Lab is an artist collective that seeks to re-ignite tastebuds and the cultural imagination in support of emerging and sustainable food systems.

An initiative of Carbon Arts together with Round Angle Studio and artist Steaphan Paton, the Lab invites innovation and experimentation through unique collaborations involving artists, scientists, chefs and the food industry.

Our focus for early 2013 is native foods that support biodiversity and celebrate the traditional knowledge of Indigenous Australians. Two events with artist Janet Laurence kick off our activities in February.
