Food Dialogues: Registrations open for Local Voices

By Kurt Ackerman (Executive Manager and Trustee, SA Urban Food and Farming Trust)

I’m reaching out to you as someone who registered to be part of the Food Dialogues in 2020 because this year’s event opened for registration today, Monday 30 August, and will kick off from Monday 6 September, under the theme Local Voices.

Registration is open at

For 2021 we have continued to diversify the voices and experiences shared through the Food Dialogues as well as adding a fascinating new element: Dialogues through Food, where we explore our food culture and food system through the medium of food itself.

We are hopeful you will take an interest once again, register, and participate in the dialogue where you have interest and capacity. We know you have insights and experiences that will make valuable additions, and having your voice heard in the conversation is important to us.

Below are all the details, and we are requesting you help us spread the word to your colleagues and networks with whatever form of support or endorsement you are willing to provide. Please follow and tag us as follows:

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to be in contact. We will be grateful for any assistance you can provide in ensuring knowledge of this event is widespread, but more importantly we would like to have you join in the dialogue. We hope to see you – and hear you – in the dialogues soon.
