Artist Statement: Shaakya is an international student from India, and Serena is an Irish-born, Malaysian/Hong-Konger. In this picture, they are enjoying Taiwanese Bubble Tea and Venezuelan Arepas in Dublin city centre. While this demonstrates the diversity and availability of food in urban environments like Dublin, accessing fresh and local produce can still be a challenge.
Artist Biography: #Connected2: Climate and Food Systems is created by GOAL’s NextGen Youth members from across Ireland, Ethiopia, Honduras, Malawi, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. Through the pertinent themes of Global Food Systems and Climate Change, participants learned how each relates to global citizenship and development. They created this photo exhibition to share their learnings with you and hope to raise awareness of how climate change is affecting our food systems.
