We'll gather at 6 p.m, and start the tour and discussion at 6:30 p.m. We will even have one of the exhibitors there in person to walk us through her installation (Atlanta Urban Farms). The tour will be followed by casual mingling and drinks.

Tickets — $20 for members and students, $25 for all others

About the exhibition: "Food by Design: Sustaining the Future"

Feeding ourselves engages not only a massive infrastructure, but also advanced technologies and dynamic systems that touch on just about every aspect of the world we live in. Creating efficient, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly systems to produce enough healthy food for the world presents a wide variety of design challenges.

Curated by MODA, this exhibition will look at cutting-edge developments in food production, asking:

  • How are farms being redesigned to grow food more efficiently and sustainably?
  • How might we design systems that give everyone access to local, healthy food?
  • How are grocery store and food delivery systems being redesigned to meet changing shopping habits?
  • How are designers helping meet the challenge of feeding 9 billion people by 2050?

Food by Design: Sustaining the Future will examine food and food system innovations happening in Atlanta and beyond.
