The Cultural Sharing Dinners Project is an initiative of the Victoria Park Centre for the Arts, in collaboration with Victoria Park Community Centre. This project is funded by the Australian Government’s Fostering Integration Grants Program through the Department of Home Affairs.
This is a community event rather than a restaurant experience, so emphasis is put on connection, respect and learning together. The evenings culture/cuisine will be announced in the week of the event to accommodate any last-minute changes in hosts. Guests are welcome to BYO alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages to accompany their meal, table water is provided. Unfortunately, we are not able to cater for all dietary requirements as we already ask so much from our hosts, there are vegetarian options at each dinner. Please let us know in advance if you have any allergies.
If you would like to host a session, please contact Alice Goodall on firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 0400 576 606.
All hosts receive a fee, travel supplement and a budget for ingredients. Support will be provided to imagine and plan your date. Absolutely no experience necessary!
Vic Park Community Centre has ample parking on site and is on a number of bus routes. It has step free access, a disabled toilet with baby change, access to outdoor space and gender-neutral toilets. All support workers are welcome to attend free of charge.
We try our best to make our events inclusive of all, if you have any requirements, please be in touch with Alice Goodall on Alice Goodall on email@example.com or call: 0400 576 606.
