    • Invasive Spirits: Futurefood II

      Main Library, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      Join us in the café area of the Main Library on May 25 from 1 to 4pm for FUTUREFOOD II, featuring the "Invasive" ways of nature in the city, featuring an ice cream, made with prolific Japanese Knotweed, cooked up Toscanini's Gus Rancatore. Come and taste this tart, fruity wild vegetable that ranges up and down our public green spaces. In addition to the ice cream, 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 second event in the Invasive Spirits: Futurefood series, a partnership between Harvard's metaLAB, the Cambridge Arts Council, and the Cambridge Public Library.
