“We are nature.” Thus reads the slogan for Terra Madre 2024, inviting us to re-establish a peaceful relationship with the natural world.

Within this relationship, food is an essential element. It connects us to the soil and to the sea, and it is an integral part of our identities. As such, food is the perfect tool for explaining the inextricable link between nature and culture.

To help tell the story of this relationship, Slow Food and Paratissima Art Gallery sent out a call to international artists and performers asking them to interpret the connection between nature and culture and to creatively elaborate on the environmental and social challenges facing the current food system, drawing also on emotional connections, relationships, and passions. The chosen works are part of an art exhibition that will take place in Parco Dora from September 26 to 30, providing a space in which to reflect on the complex and often contradictory realities of our food system. In this conference, we’ll talk about some of the works with the artists and with the curator of the exhibition, Laura Tota.

The creation of this art exhibition in collaboration with Paratissima is made possible thanks to support from the Compagnia di San Paolo Foundation. The Foundation and Slow Food share a commitment to building a more just and cohesive society, working together for inclusion, and cooperating for sustainable development and global citizenship. These shared objectives come to life through art at Terra Madre 2024.

The panel of speakers will be published soon.

This event is free and open to all who are interested. To participate, please book a spot on the website (just click on the “Register” button on the event page and leave your email address). We recommend arriving at the Arena 10 minutes before the start of the event. The organizers reserve the right to reassign your seat if you are not present within 5 minutes of the start.

Terra Madre Salone del Gusto is presented by Slow Food, the City of Turin, and the Piedmont Region. We look forward to seeing you at Parco Dora in Turin from Thursday, September 26 – Monday, September 30. Through food, we can rediscover ourselves as part of nature. #TerraMadre2024
