Drink and Think

July 16th – July 22nd 2017

The Workshop

For one week, food will be the privileged angle used to investigate social and cultural conditions, environmental issues and global topics, such as the future of our lands and oceans.

The remote location of Boisbuchet will be the ideal place for a visionary, but operative “think tank” to develop ideas and prototypes for new sustainable water vessels, to create new drinking and eating rituals, to no longer be accustomed to the use of plastics or other environment enemies, and to imagine cleaner oceans and fields for the very near future.

This will be an occasion for the team to make statements, to make people think, but also to reflect with a certain dose of playfulness and a joyful aesthetic: drink & think!
