Fork In The Road has had a beautiful summer, met over 700 people in and around Edinburgh. To get a sense of the summer, please look through the newsletters first.

What is Fork In The Road?

Fork In The Road is a collaboration between artist Morvern Odling and The Edinburgh Tool Library and is a new creative research project exploring food issues facing Edinburgh’s communities. We’ve built two mobile kitchen units which are towed by bicycle and over the course of the summer the project collaborated with many different organisations to engage people in their environment; through meals, workshops and culinary bicycling adventures.

This is an open source project and all of the designs and knowledge from the community engagement discussions will be made available under its open source licence. On the 29th and 30th of July 2017 co-design workshops were held to create a second iteration of the original designs made in Madrid in 2015. These new plans have been designed for Edinburgh’s environment and communities, influenced by the knowledge gained from the co-design event.  >outcomes from the two days workshop <

The designs for the units are available on request – email mo@edinburghtoollibrary.org.uk

We had an opening debut as part of Edinburgh Tool Library’s exhibition at St Margaret’s House here we are speaking about it –

Fork In The Road is a collaboration between Morvern Odling and The Edinburgh Tool Library, it is funded by The National Lottery, The Edinburgh Airport Community Grant Fund and Vegware.

Morvern Odling, Yannick Roels and Suraia Abud came together at design futures event Interactivos at the Media-Lab Prado in 2015 which was the catalyst which started this project. Images and details of this project can be found HERE
