Sharing food unites people across different communities and gives us space to share and learn from one another. For those away from home, food acts as a point of connection, remembering and nostalgia; for those wanting to explore new cultures, food can often act as the first step.

Melbourne is home to a diverse range of cultures, and this is reflected in the city’s culinary offerings. It is no surprise then, that the sharing of food, and its history, has allowed this city to take great strides toward embracing its multiculturalism.

Join us at MPavilion for a discussion to hear from a range of speakers that have shaped and encouraged the act sharing of food and cultural knowledge. Come hear from our panellists on where they believe the future of this work is heading and where they hope it will go, and for a delicious conversation that explores sharing and making food more accessible to the public.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the people of the Eastern Kulin Nations as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
