Body Care: On Food, Self-Care, and the Wellness Industry

  • Museum of Food and Drink 62 Bayard Street Brooklyn, 11222 (map)

Join MOFAD x Body Politic for a workshop and panel discussion interrogating the connection between food, self-care, and the wellness industry. The evening will explore community-building and nourishment, examining how the concept of “wellness” intersects with food.

Panelists will discuss wellness language, which is often used to police the way women, queer folks, and other marginalized populations engage with food; how we can reconcile interests in food and self-care in the face of diet culture and prescriptive wellness; and the barriers the food and wellness industries face toward inclusivity and accessibility.

A full line up of speakers and workshop will be announced shortly — stay tuned for more details!
