Event Description

Come along to the second Annual Fair Food Convergence held in Melbourne on the 22nd and 23rd October. Hosted by the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance, we’ll be converging at CERES Community Environment Park. Everyone is welcome – farmers, makers, connectors, chefs, community gardeners, hunger activists, consumer advocates, GMO campaigners, academics, and policymakers… 

The Convergence is intended as a democratic forum for the movement to come together, share our successes and challenges, tell stories and debate strategies, work collectively for radical food system reform from a diverse range of viewpoints, positions, and activities, and provide the incoming AFSA National Committee with a mandate from members for its work in the coming year.

The Convergence will consist of a day and a half of unconference where the agenda is set by all those in attendance, and there will be plenty of opportunity for networking and making the important connections you need to progress your efforts back on the home front. 

For lunch on Saturday we’ll have a potluck feast, so be sure to bring a plate of food to share! Saturday night, we will get together for a dinner of ethically produced and local food atFeast of Merit. Tickets for the dinner are sold separately here

On Sunday we’ll round off the Convergence with a delicious catered lunch. In the afternoon, AFSA will hold our Annual General Meeting and elect the next year’s National Committee. If you’re keen to get more involved, keep an eye out for the formal notification of the AGM and call for nominations we’ll be issuing by the 1st of October.
