ReFashionReFood

Waste management. Sharing societies. Diversity. Sub-cultures.  Eco awareness. Sustainable, collaborative economies. Freedom of identity. Art as a political tool.

ReFashionReFood is an emerging platform and festival for sustainable learning and exchange, bringing people together to find fun and manageable tools to empower ourselves in an overwhelming reality. An inter-disciplinary, non-profit collaborative project, triggered by global environmental and social imbalances, presenting DIY micro-solutions for macro-problems.

We are based in Berlin and Borås+ Västra Götaland and arrange workshops, discussions, actions, swap shops, film screenings, inter culture exchange, art shows, happenings, performances,  food sharing, waste cooking, pop-ups, fairs, concerts, parties and more!

A mixed pot of artists, researchers, designers, alchemists, students, journalists, people, cooks, crafters, local entrepreneurs & farmers, bureaucrats, activists, teachers, politicians, institutions… not satisfied with current, dominating solutions.

Waste Cooking, ReSoup & ReDining

We rescue food from stores, farmers, bakeries, restaurants and markets that would otherwise, for mostly bad reasons, have been thrown away. And then we cook togehter... delicious soups, smoothies and ReFood Buffets! Learn by chefs and food magicians how to prepare dishes from an odd bunch of leftovers and castways! Then sit down and enjoy the divinities in good company!
