Slow down; life is too fast-paced. Take a step back and allow yourself time 'to stand and stare'. Hayley Cull, Ed Gillepsie and the Youth Food Movement introduce the ‘Slow’ Movement. Talks and workshops to calm the city slicker.
- Hayley Cull, co-author of Slow London, will run a Slow Writing workshop (within the limit of available places) and will also share ideas to help you live more and fret less.
- Youth Food Movement UK, a network of young people committed to food that is good, clean and fair will be exploring the importance of family recipes and recipe writing in a session called 'Recipes for Remembering’.
Surprisingly, London, one of the most frantic cities in the world is also one that offers amazing opportunities to slow down and enjoy a re-discovery of the senses. This rediscovery is the basis of the ‘Slow’ movement.
This movement is spreading and reaching many different areas that celebrate the idea of stepping back and taking the time to look around. This event will introduce 'slow' travel, writing and cooking. Our guests will give you examples of their own experiences of slowing down and tips to enjoy a differently paced London lifestyle.
