Beyond The Free Market

From Critical Practice Chelsea
Jump to: navigation, search

Beyond The Free Market looks at the consequences of capitalist economic policies for food production and consumption. We aim to explore, through creative, critical practice issues such as: food overproduction, food insufficiency and the impact of these on developing and third world countries. Our work refers to Freeganism or Skipping, sustainability, agricultural policy, waste and recycling.


Last meeting: Minutes 28th January 2008. See Minutes pages for details of previous meetings.
