The Soft Protest Digest
The Soft Protest Digest is a multidisciplinary research collective involving Danish farmer and artist Nickie Sigurdsson, and French designers and researchers Robin Bantigny en Jérémie Rentien Lando.
Centering its research around food history, agriculture, and the social and political ties to what constitutes a food culture, the collective aims to design environmentally resilient diets. The Soft Protest Digest believes in the usage of storytelling as a way to create or adapt food traditions, recipes, and diets which would take into account the cultural heritage and emotional bond between the eater and its local gastronomy.
Engaging with the community through eventful meals, workshops, and talks, the collective seeks to encompass the knowledge and resources of the actors at hand in the production of vernacular food culture in order to design consistent alternatives.
