Stories of connection and change through The Welcome Dinner Project

I conceptualised and featured in this video, in which volunteers and participants from the Welcome Dinner Project Victoria reflect on their Welcome Dinner Project journeys.
The Welcome Dinner Project is an initial platform to spark connection between people who are new to Australia with established community members over a shared meal in someone’s home or a trusted community space. Everyone brings a plate of food to share and our highly skilled volunteer Facilitators encourage guests to share the story of their food and other areas they may have in common, throughout the dinner.
These events are powerful ways to build trust, belonging and connection between people and break through cultural, social and other barriers, as we share food and stories. Find out more at
