Abstract

Hannover and Lower Saxony is home of large agro-industries and of a leading trade fair for agro-technology. At the same time, a new community-based sensitivity, from pop-up farmer markets to open streets initiatives, has developed a growing trend in adaptable platforms able to connect producers to consumers over food and aim at a more sustainable future of all food aspects in a changing society and economy. In this context the notion of resilient urban metabolism has been investigated as a collection of socio-spatial and regional-based trends able to visualize the levels of interdependencies occurring among urban-rural contexts at different scales, for sustaining the process of food distribution and its consumption for a given population (regional foodsheds). By recollecting different sensorial and artistic experiences into movable pieces of urban furniture, the activities developed offered the direct participation of young creatives, invited experts and local stakeholders to co-create a public living room where crossed food geographies have been used as cultural medium to catalyse the regional food cycles with regenerative effects driven by culture and creativity.
