Between 80 to 100 people attended to hear our speakers present on food, urban planning and public transport issues. The band, The Conch stole the show at lunch time and had everyone grooving and tapping along with their unique sound and political lyrics. The authentic Mexican vegetarian lunch time feast was enjoyed by all and the engage media film festival screened some interesting documentaries and ran until people were ready for home.
The speaking sessions on food, transport and urban planning were well attended and there was some excellent exchange between the speakers and audience.
The event was filmed by crew from Plug-in TV and we hope to have some content on the internet soon for you to download and watch.
The MSF would like to thank our speakers, the City of Port Phillip and the Port Phillip EcoCentre for their support in holding the event.
