The Future of Food: Subversive Economies

Monday | November 19, 2018 | 6:00 pm — 8:00 pm

The true meaning of the word economy is “the management of home.” It refers to how we manage labor, culture, livelihoods, and land. Our relationship with economics offers us an opportunity to live our values. This final talk in CUESA’s 2018 series about The Future of Food will offer an opportunity to examine our relationship to land, business, and money— three key aspects of our daily lives—and to dream toward alternative possibilities.

Join CUESA for a conversation with several Bay Area organizations who are reclaiming the true meaning of economy in food, farming, and retail, and using creative economic models to subvert conventional capitalist systems, and work toward equity and sustainability. Take inspiration from these innovative organizations, ase explore how to put our money where our mouth is, and build the future we want to live in.


Reception featuring refreshments from CUESA’s Ferry Plaza Farmers Market (included with admission) to follow.

CUESA acknowledges the many historical factors that have led to a wide range of inequities in the United States. The Subversive Economies talk is an opportunity for us to all investigate the impacts these histories continue to have on access to fresh food and agricultural land. We invite you to consider San Francisco’s living wage ($19.63/hour or $40,830/year), as you purchase your ticket for the event. We look forward to join you in a rich discussion at the talk!

Ticket fees are used to offset CUESA’s cost of providing snacks and hosting the CUESA talk series and to support CUESA’s public programs and mission. No one will be turned away for lack of funds! Please contact ahead of time to reserve a scholarship ticket. If the event is not sold out, scholarship tickets will also be sold at the door.

Tickets are nonrefundable but may be transferable by contacting us.
