Summit Roundtable Lunch: “The Sixth Borough”
Friday, October 25, at Judson Church — $22
This special lunch, created especially for the 2013 Summit by media artist Stefani Bardin and chef Mihir Desai, took diners on an edible tour of New York City’s five boroughs, providing a close and at times critical look at the shifting cultural landscapes found in each. Diners considered the promise and failures of urban rooftop gardening in “Brooklyn,” while those in “Staten Island” participated in a traditional Sri Lankan wedding feast, and guests seated in “Queens” dug into food-truck culture and the fusion foods born at the intersection of disparate cuisines. The culinary and social intersections highlighted at the lunch formed a temporary sixth borough: food.
Summit Dinner Conversations
Friday, October 25, following Day One presentations — $25
We believe that the best “breakout groups” happen outside the conference site, especially when they involve dinner and drinks! For the very first time we offered Summit attendees the opportunity to continue the conversation that started on the main stage, meeting and exchanging ideas with each other and with presenters at dinners held in the homes of local members of the Creative Time community.
