What’s your relationship with coffee and sugar? How much do you know about those saccharine grains and bitter grounds you reach for every morning?

This forum explores how digital art can be used to examine issues around food justice.

It will activate audiences, and question whether using creative projects to highlight inequality in the global food system can lead to changes in policy and public opinion, with the intent to move towards producing a fairer food system for all.

The event features food justice campaigners, academics, technologists, culinary artists and digital artists, all examining the use of art as a mechanism for inspiring, entertaining and informing audiences.

The evening will feature two short immersive works for smartphone by artist Maya Chowdhry which investigate our relationship with coffee and sugar.

On arrival, attendees will receive an ethically-sourced drink and snack prepared by Liverpool based chefs FoodSketz.
