We are honoured to be hosting a thought-provoking and inspirational photographic exhibition – We Feed the World – produced by our partners The Gaia Foundation. Bringing together an international team of world-renowned photographers, farming communities, farmers’ movements and civil society groups, We Feed the World is a unique and far-reaching initiative led by The Gaia Foundation. It is designed to demonstrate the vital role that agro-ecology and food sovereignty play not just in feeding the world but in combating climate change, increasing biodiversity and keeping communities together. Through powerful imagery and amazing stories of small scale, family farmers and local communities, We Feed the World takes this message out to the wider public.
Over the last two years, 40 award winning photographers including Rankin, Martin Parr and Gabriela Iturbide, have given their time to document the lives of nearly 50 farming communities across six continents. The aim of these iconic images is to celebrate the work of the small, family farmers who provide over 70% of the world’s food in ecologically and socially just ways, and to highlight the challenges they currently face. By putting the spotlight on these farmers and their diverse cultures and landscapes, we counter the image of the poor, struggling farmer with a truer picture that celebrates their knowledge, resilience and overwhelming success.

Knowing, honoring and reviving our food heritage are vital to our successful food futures. We consider this topic crucial, so have dedicated a full day of Amorevore to exploring the Future of Heritage.
In addition to talks in the Symposium and learning opportunities in the Atelier, events include a Seed Exchange, Cacao ceremonies, an Heirloom dining experience, tastings, and special talks. We are also excited to screen Seed: The Untold Story and host a Q&A with those involved with the making of the film.
The Future of Heritage will run on Saturday October 27th from 9am into the evening. The full Future of Heritage programme will be available here in early September.
Music is indeed the food of love, and what food festival celebrating the love of food would be complete without it?
Amorevore will feature Ibiza’s extraordinary DJs, acoustic live music curated by Sofar Sounds Ibiza on our main stage and a special musical treat for those dining at the Feasts.
The full line-up will be here in July.
Ibiza’s art scene is booming with a host of art galleries, street art, pop-up exhibitions, artist studios and art festivals. Food and art go hand in hand – food is in itself art, and this will be celebrated at Amorevore.
Edible Art Gardens and Mandalas will beautify our main festival site, as well as captivating imagery in the We Feed the World Exhibition.
Amorevore will feature commissioned interactive art pieces by artists who receive funding from the Amorevore Art Grant. We will be looking for art pieces that raise awareness around a key food issue, that are educational, cross-generational, future thinking and interactive, as well as aesthetically beautiful or provoking. All art pieces will be guided by sustainability principles.
