Creative Tastebuds

Two-day symposium Creative Tastebuds, exploring how brain and culture collaborate on taste, September 4-5th at Aarhus Theater, Aarhus, Denmark.

Is it possible to build houses that make food taste better? Is taste the good, the bad or the ugly in our storytelling about food? How can taste connect us to the past? How do we share the taste experiences of a meal? And how do brain and culture collaborate on taste?

An architect, a chef, an author and an artist will challenge prominent taste researchers from both the sciences and the humanities – and also the audience – when they live at stage create new understandings and imaginations of what taste means for our everyday lives: for learning, sociality, storytelling and memory.

The event is in English, and will be relevant for all the different professionals and private persons that work to bring taste out to the people. We invite scholars, chefs, food innovators, educators, designers, politicians, artists, architects, researchers, restaurateurs, food writers, journalists, foodies and more.

As a participant you are invited to present your approach to taste with a text or a video. For more information, registration and contributions, see www.creativetastebuds.dk.
