Rena Effendi

We Feed the World is coordinated by The Gaia Foundation and brings together an international team of farmers, award-winning photographers, NGOs, the food sovereignty movement and ethical businesses in celebration of small-scale farming and agro-ecology. This is about people, not production lines; farms not factories; agri-culture, not agri-business. This is about a fair and just farming system that regenerates the Earth and does not cost the planet.

This is a global photographic initiative celebrating the small, family farmers who produce over 70% of the world’s food. A program with over 40 events, including workshops, screenings and the exhibition documenting 50 farming communities over 6 continents, presenting over 300 photographs by nearly 50 participating world-renown photographers.

For the last three years, We Feed the World has captured the triumphs and challenges of 50 communities around the world. These extraordinary images and their incredible stories aim to forge a new and positive narrative about the farmers who really feed the world and demonstrate how small-scale farming not only provides the majority of the world’s food but also offers solutions to many other planetary crises. From climate disruption, mass extinction of species, the pollution of our waterways and oceans to the diminishing health and wellbeing of our communities.

We Feed the World will open to the public at the Bargehouse Gallery on London’s Southbank from October 12th, from 11 am to 6 pm daily. An inspiring program of talks, workshops and films from farmers and communities from the food sovereignty movement, international activists, photographers and business leaders will run alongside at the Gallery and other venues.

From icy fishing waters of Northern Sweden to the jungles of the Colombian Amazon, We Feed the World showcases the diversity, resilience and success of the men and women who produce the majority of the worlds food and helps us to understand of the critical importance of supporting a food system led by small, scale farmers, not by corporations. At the same time as the exhibition launches in London, local exhibitions of a selection of the images will open in every farming community we have collaborated with around the world, thereby making We Feed the World the biggest simultaneous photographic exhibition ever launched.
