Below are some of the key themes Slow Food Glasgow focuses on including a selection of events we’ve held with our partners. If you have ideas you’d like to see as events or you are an organisation looking to create a partnership for future events we would love to hear from you.

Celebrating food heritage

This is a very important topic for us because after all, we are what we eat! Food is the expression of a territory’s complexity and includes so many aspects of our culture. We focus, often under the input of the CCA, on creating events where we engage with the public by talking about food (and eat it!), touching different aspects like history, exchanges, traditions and recipes, worldwide.

Learning about food culture through a multidisciplinary lens

We set up and take part in events about all things food in cinemas, glasshouses, cultural and community centres, restaurants, cafes, grocers and education institutions. Whatever the location, we will always share with everyone our passion for knowing where food comes from, who grows and produces it, and what culture it represents. Since 2017 we have collaborated with film festivals and directors to organise film screenings followed by Q&As and meals related to the content of the movies.

We organise events in collaboration with local producers to stimulate collaboration, support and inspiration, introducing local and small-batch products to a wider audience. We're always thinking of new ways to engage people with food and drink.
