'We Feed the World' is a unique and far-reaching communications initiative to challenge the myth that we need industrial agriculture and quick-fix technologies to feed an ever-increasing population - we need volunteers for the launch of the We Feed the World photographic exhibition and campaign. Over the last three years, award winning photographers from around the world, including Rankin, Martin Parr, and Graciela Iturbide have given their time to document the lives of fifty farming communities across six continents. A selection of the 400+ images, together with their inspirational stories, will be shown in London and across all of the participating farming communities, breaking the Guiness World Record for the number of simultaneous photographic exhibitions held at any one time.

We have designed a varied events programme packed with inspiring workshops, talks, film screenings and more that will run alongside the exhibition. With a stunning backdrop of over 300 images telling the story of regenerative farming globally, this programme of events will bring the exhibition space to life. 

Shifts will run from 11am-6pm each day, with a one-hour break for lunch. The exhibition is open to the public from 12th to 21st October 2018. Each volunteer will not only have the opportunity to attend every event and workshop for free (outside of shift hours) but you will have the opportunity to network with some of the biggest names in the food, farming and photography worlds today. We also offer up to £15 expenses for food and travel each day, on the provision of receipts.

If you would like to be involved, then please send your name, contact details and availability to Francesca Price at francesca@gaianet.org and Georgie Styles georgie@gaianet.org.
