Don't Miss FOOD CON!

Join Indy Food Co-op on March 5, for Food Con, an unconventional convention that features art exhibitions, poetry, films and lectures, hand-on activities, and, of course, food. Food Con will be a first-of-its-kind showcase and exploration of the art and culture of food in Indianapolis. Food Con is being touted as a food event for foodies in the same vein that GenCon is to gamers.

The free Food Con event will be held at the Harrison Center for the Arts from 6-10 p.m., during IDADA’s popular First Friday tour. In the gym, Indy Food Co-op and other representatives from local farmer's markets, urban gardens, neighborhood supper clubs will be on hand to answer questions, share recipes and discuss their passion for food. Artists exhibiting that night include Bruce Campbell, Kyle Ragsdale, Carolyn Springer, Penelope Dullaghan, Ben Valentine, Leah Gauthier and Kristin Hess.

Food Con is a joint project between the Harrison Center for the Arts and the Indiana Humanities Council’s Food for Thought program. Stop by and say hello at the Indy Food Co-op booth!
