Nomadic Banquet Workshop in India

Debra Solomon presents an urban mapping and service design workshop in Delhi for the Dutch Art Institute (DAI), participants from other art and design institutions and delegates to the Doors8Delhi conference. Up to 15 participants will work in interdisciplinary teams to develop (a proposal, a prototype) an experience or service design in the form of a wandering mobile banquet. Banquet guests will walk or take auto rickshaws from course to course and discover the city's street food, its' street vendors and of course, its' streets.

The focal point of this project is to study and map existing and successful food system models and distribution initiatives in Delhi and by doing so gain insights that will inform the team's own experience and service designs. The results of this research will not be a traditional sit-down banquet in one location, but (possibly) a (prototype for a) wandering banquet, a Nomadic Banquet that other Doors8Delhi workshop participants may attend. At the Doors8Delhi Social Innovation Salon, March 21-26 the participants will present their Nomadic Banquet.
