Recap: The Feast Pavilion at Essex Market Building D
This past week, the Feast Conference took over part of the city, with a mission of celebrating “ground shaking change,” gathering “remarkable entrepreneurs, radicals, doers and thinkers that bring their talents to the table to make life better.”
After a reception last week at the Museum of Natural History, and a two day conference at Eyebeam, the Feast wrapped up on the Lower East Side at the Essex Market D building (recently the site for the “Imagining the Lowline” exhibit). The Feast Pavilion featured art installations, food vendors, and booths set up by “today’s most remarkable innovators.”
Exhibitors included Made in the Lower East Side (miLES), Makeshift Magazine, Social Good Store and Center for Urban Pedagogy.
Aside from trying to find out how to create change, we procured a fantastic brisket and spicy slaw sandwich from pop-up food vendor Mayhem & Stout, sat at the large communal table in the middle of the warehouse, wandered around the art installations and, maybe best of all, got to play “Mind Pong.”
