A cross-media project that tells the story of the creation of the Mediterranean Diet and explores why it is relevant to our lives today.

Connecting Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Croatia and Cyprus, the project is based on a contemporary photography exhibition and parallel activities including documentary screenings, educational programmes, food photography workshops and online cooking.

Bringing alive a history of sustainability, health and exchange, the Mediterranean Garden seeks to inspire change and to connect a European audience with one of the world’s richest and healthiest food cultures. To be presented in European venues starting 2022.
