The Soft Protest Digest is an art and research collective founded by Danish artist and gardener Nickie Sigurdsson, with French designers and artists Robin Bantigny and Jérémie Rentien Lando.

The collective is using different narratives to test how food culture, in the context of climate change, is created and altered. Calling on the use of fictional traditions, multi-species storytellings, publishing, the landscape and local knowledge; the collective believes that stories create kinship and allies, much needed in a time of environmental breakdown, in order to imagine and realise liveable futures.


As of today The Soft Protest Digest has been focusing its efforts on three different areas which have led to several context-specific editions.

  1. Make a garden before you build a house
  2. Landscape, soil, cheese and me
  1. The Soft Protest, re-chewing & Digest
  2. The immersive table (five recipes)
  3. Waarom beginnen met Stamppot?
