Project

Slow Food as a means of dialogue in Mediterranean Contexts

Objectives

The SLOWMED project aims to promote creative intercultural dialogue to consolidate a Mediterranean cultural identity based on its culinary heritage and to encourage the intergenerational transfer of traditions to young people. Considering food as “a work of art”, the project will also involve a wide range of artists from the Mediterranean region in a new way of highlighting the culinary heritage. Food contests, artistic competitions and educational workshops addressed to children will help spread the project’s message to various social groups of the Mediterranean area.

This project aims to encourage the Mediterranean culinary heritage preservation and conservation, to promote the recognition of food as a form of cultural and artistic expression, and to foster nutrition education based on the Mediterranean culinary heritage
