What If? Why Not?

Activity: External talk or presentationInvited talk


Feeding Futures is an interactive event, which will explore some of the complicated attitudes towards the ways that we feed our babies, particularly when in public. Through talks, workshops and performances, participants will be invited to share their own experiences, whilst we discuss how to create a more supportive and positive culture around this essential act of care.

This is a free event and lunch and refreshments will be provided. You are welcome to bring your babies and young children and we will provide toys and activities for them.

Speakers include Dr Joanna Wolfarth, Sally Sutherland, Krissi Musiol and Louise Oliver.

Sally will join us for a session called What If? Why Not? where she will introduce us to her practice based design research. She will then lead a short workshop asking ‘what if?’ questions, a tool for daring to dream, speculating otherwise and imagining alternative feeding futures.
