Dinner time! A series of conferences on eating practices

As part of its multidisciplinary design workshop, “Dinner time!”, LISAA is organizing a series of conferences on the theme of cooking, food customs and eating practices, from 16th-20th November 2015 (open to the public).


The idea behind these conferences is to intersect ideas and question cooking practices.

Chefs, experts in sensory analysis, consumer sociology, marketing and innovation, company directors, farmers, philosopher, ethnologists and anthropologists: everyone is welcome at the experts’ table!


Following the series of conferences, a multidisciplinary design workshop will be organised in all of LISAA’s schools in Rennes, Paris, Nantes and Strasbourg from 23rd-27th November. It will involve the 2200 students that make up LISAA and will be the occasion to dissect the practice of eating with the designer’s scalpel.

"Questioning food in its artistic dimensions, deconstructing food customs and imagining creative scenarios – these will be the project themes for the budding designers."

Sonia Lecomte, director of LISAA Rennes and project manager of the “Dinner Time!” workshop

From this group reflection and work, innovative concepts, design projects, editorial, educational and audiovisual productions will be born. These will be presented in a fanzine produced by the students. Make sure you stay tuned!
