    • Invasive Spirits: Futurefood I

      Main Library, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      Join us in the café area of the Main Library on May 11 from 1-4pm for FUTUREFOOD I to learn more about the invisible forces of fermentation—featuring kvass, a traditional Russian fermented beverage made from leftover bread, created in collaboration with Aeronaut Brewery. We'll let everyone get in on the kvass-making action, with a big vat of breadcrumbs to soak and stir and make into magic. In addition to the kvass, we'll have games and exercises to help us imagine a "Good Anthropocene" by proposing inventions, systems, and schemes for neighborly food flourishing in times of climate change. Bicycle gardens? Rooftop aquaculture? Neighborhood wind farms? Whatever you dream up, artists and designers from Harvard's metaLAB will make scheming such playful possibilities easy and fun. We'll take the richest outputs and turn them into cartoon visions of thriving urban scenarios for the Anthropocene for display in the gallery of the Cambridge Arts Council. This is the first event in the Invasive Spirits: Futurefood series, a partnership between Harvard's metaLAB, the Cambridge Arts Council, and the Cambridge Public Library.
