About MAD Mondays

MAD Mondays is an evening talk series that convenes on the traditional day of rest for restaurants. Founded by Chef René Redzepi in Copenhagen, MAD – Danish for ‘food’ – is a not-for-profit organisation that assists and inspires the cooking community to make a difference in their restaurants and in the world.

Sydney MAD Mondays is a joint project of Carriageworks, MAD and Kylie Kwong, and brings together voices from across the Australian food community for talks on the role today’s restaurants play in taking care of the environment. In April, the first Sydney MAD Monday focused on Indigenous Foodways.

We limit tickets to a cosy crowd so that everyone in the audience can engage in the conversation. So please take a couple of minutes now to reserve your spot and to share the link with your staff and networks, as we will open tickets to the broader public on Tuesday.

 

Hope to see you there,

From the team at MAD, Carriageworks and Kylie Kwong.
