From the inception of Hox Zodiac, engaging through active participation and expanding horizons through learning has been an enlightening journey. Discovering new gifted artists, scientists, scholars, thinkers, and above all, wonderful individuals with a passion for animals and storytelling, has often come about during communal events. In many cultures, sharing a meal acts as a pivotal moment to bring people together. The Hox Zodiac workshops provide a profound opportunity for attendees to delve deeper into our bond with animals and recognize their significance in science, mythology, culture, food, and beyond. In November 2016, Victoria Vesna hosted a Hox Zodiac workshop at the Zurich University of the Arts, offering participants an occasion to savor new flavors and exchange insights.
