Founder and Director of Free From Harm to Speak in Indianapolis
Robert Grillo, the Founder and Director of Free From Harm will speak in Indianapolis on August 22nd. The event is free to attend, and free food samples will be provided. We are very fortunate to have him speaking here in Indy just two weeks after he presents at the National Animal Rights Conference in Washington DC.
We are what we eat, but what are the powerful forces shaping our food choices? This is the key question explored in Robert Grillo’s presentation: Fictions, Facts and Food Choices.
Grillo describes the intended audience as very broad for this presentation because, he writes,
“we are all impacted by this cultural indoctrination from birth. None of us are immune from it unless we live in a hole and never come out and never watch TV, browse the internet, read any magazines or newspapers, etc.”
This visually-engrossing presentation reveals how the powerful forces of popular culture shape our beliefs and manipulate the food choices that stem from those beliefs, often without our knowledge. In this fictional world, animals are willing participants in whatever it is we choose to do with them. Grillo presents a sampling of the most common food fictions by showing us concrete and recognizable examples from everyday life.
This presentation will take place at 1pm on Saturday, August 22nd at 1125 Spruce Street (“The Church Within”). More information on Facebook.
