A seat at our Table - Edmonton 2015

A seat at our Table - Edmonton 2015

In early November we set the table again bringing together 100 engaging individuals from diverse backgrounds to share the best of themselves over the best of what’s grown and raised here, engaging in conversation table at the Art Gallery of Alberta in downtown Edmonton.

 

The food was super creative and intoxicating, and the friendship were sure will last a lifetime, and the conversations came to the table from out there; from all across Alberta – and beyond. From the farmer’s fields, the chef’s kitchens, the boardrooms, the streets, the artist’s studio, the arena, the explorer’s camera. The stories that inform and incite the conversations at Alberta’s table. They are the stories of our journeys and our experiences – lived, captured, colourfully told and daily shared, here and at tables all over Alberta.

Are you ready to join the conversation?

“A seat at or table” is the cornerstone expression of commitment to the continuum of conversation with Albertan’s. Recognizing our past while focusing on the present and future generations, and functioning as a dynamic catalyst for change, innovation and education about Albertans daily food sources.

It’s about being genuine within a relationship ones that we witness between a Chefs and Farmers within our province just like we see with Chef Andrew Winfield of River Café of Calgary, along with farmers Elna & Doug Edgar of Edgar Farms in Innisfail. Alberta.

Our province is rich in resources – what we grow and produce here feeds the world. From our famous beef to barley used by breweries across North America; what we show creates here attracts and investment far beyond our borders.

And the best conversations happen when people sit down to share a meal together. Food is often the catalyst, but it’s the imaginations, ideas, passions and personalities that get good conversations going – and keep them going.

Conversations flow naturally around the table – we talk about everything from food to mood. From who we are, to where we come from, to where we’re headed.

The table; its where we share everything. The bounty of our land. The stories of our lives. Our diversity is worth celebrating. So we are.

A Seat at Our Table recently brought together 100 individual, from farmers to flyers, storytellers to business builders…musicians, style-makers and bread bakers.

It’s where we celebrated, educated and at times expressed ones opinions. We ate great food, enjoyed great conversations, and life-long connections were made. Its’ also where discussions sparked some big ideas  – because everyone brought their best to the table.
