Feeding the Spirit: Museums, Food and Community

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and the Carnegie Museum of Art

Pittsburgh, Oct. 13

Register at http://futureofmuseums.org/events/lecture/2011symposium.cfm

Convened in collaboration with Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Association of Children’s Museums and American Public Gardens Association.

The symposium Feeding the Spirit: Museums, Food & Community will bring together leading movers and shakers from inside and outside the field.

• How can museums help provide their communities with the information and resources they need to be more “literate” about food?

• How can museums bring their food services into alignment with values about health, sustainability and equity, while improving their own bottom line?

• How can museums use food to reach new audiences and forge stronger ties with their communities?

Speakers, panelists and participants will work together to generate a national resource guide to share with the field, helping build a compendium of best practices, case studies and exciting ideas. Museums can change the world—if we all band together to build a better and healthier future.
