MADE IN BROOKLYN, NY
In 2017, the print edition of MOLD Magazine was launched in response to a UN report detailing an impending global food crisis. The report, which predicted that by 2030 there would be more people on the planet than our food systems had the capacity to feed, provided a lens of urgency through which to think critically about the future of food and design. Over the past five years, the publication has expanded coverage to include topics such as community-based food systems, alternative ways of eating, and regenerative agriculture, asking what role design can play in all of these fields. This solstice season, MOLD is turning our focus toward a more resilient local food ecology by launching Field Meridians, a new arts and design organization from the MOLD family dedicated to food sovereignty in our own community of Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
