As you probably know, the Shared Table Project is an intercultural program which aims to break down barriers, stereotypes and prejudices. Since 2012 the program has brought together hundreds of women of all ages from diverse communities to share their stories, talk about their food, backgrounds, culture and people. Women are a hugely powerful “channel of communication” and we have the ability to build social cohesion together from the ground up. The Shared Table Project gives us a chance to act both locally towards this important global goal.
In 2018 we are updating the format of the program as our pool of ‘graduates’ has become too big to fit into a kitchen! We plan to meet three times, at each meeting bringing (vegetarian or vegan) food from our cultures to enjoy together, as we share our stories, hear from inspiring women speakers and work together on practical projects (like putting together birthing kits, for example) to help women less advantaged than we are here.
Join us for the first meeting of 2018, with an exciting program of discussion and activities:
Thursday May 17
10:30am to 1:30pm
at NCJW House, 111-113 Queen St, Woollahra (entrance Dorhauer Lane)
THIS EVENT IS FREE OF CHARGE but please bring a vegetarian or vegan plate of food from your culture to explain and share for lunch.
Buses will be provided from and back to Western Sydney for women who would like transport. Please say so when you RSVP and we will send you details of the pickup point and time.
RSVP ESSENTIAL to email@example.com
Looking forward to seeing you on May 17! (Our next two meetings will be held in Western Sydney with buses provided for women to get there too.)
All the very best, Lynda
Manager, Community Relations and Policy
