A seat at our Table - Edmonton 2015

 “Eating is so intimate. It’s very sensual. When you invite someone to sit at your table and when you want to cook for them, you’re inviting a person into your life - Maya Angelo

 The goal for “A seat at our table” is simple: to gather interesting Albertans together around a table to enjoy an amazing meal of locally grown Alberta food, engage in rich & deep conversation, and share the outcome while we celebrate our love of this land – linking it back to business & agriculture. It’s all about story telling - “A seat at our table” was designed to bridge the gap between urban and rural (farm/farmer), getting these two groups closer together, prompting consumers to ask more questions rather than making assumptions; but it’s became bigger than that – it evolved into everything “Alberta”. The economy, sports, arts, culture, travel, food, agriculture, philanthropy, talent.

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

The food was creative and intoxicating, and the friendships that began are sure to last a lifetime. Thefood came from farms to tables, and so did the conversation; stories were told from all across Alberta – and beyond. From the farmers' fields and chef's kitchens, from boardrooms, streets, artists' studios, arenas, and from behind the explorers' camera - they were stories that inform, entertain, and spark new conversations tables across Alberta. They are the stories of our journeys and our experiences – lived, captured, and colourfully told.
