Communicating through FEASTING
We will be collaborating with two incredible projects at our event at Borderless; 91 Ways to Build a Global City and Women of The World. Both will be sharing stories, facilitating conversation with delicious food.
91 Ways is a charity that works to bring Bristol's 91 language communities together through the uniting power of food. They have a vision of connecting all of Bristol’s language communities through something that we all share, a love of good food. They run supper clubs, cook up events, workshops, festivals and collect stories around the city. They have worked with people from all corners of Bristol and from all walks of life.
"We watch people cross borders and reach understanding and unity at every single event we hold. We see the uniting power of food, and the importance of eating and sharing good food to our identity, sense of self and our sense of belonging. We Bring Bristol Together."
The Bristol WOW (Women of the World) are based in Bristol and running most of their events at Hamilton House, WOW attracts around 40 – 50 women every month. Activities range from singing, talks, movement, dance to storytelling.
WOW brings together women of diverse backgrounds and ages. Whether they are long term residents of the city or new inhabitants, the women and children find solidarity in the the opportunity to discovery new connections and a safe and open environment to gather in.
The group is composed of Irish, African, English, Scottish, Somalian, Egyptian, Iranian, Jamaican and other West Indians, Italian, Spanish, Welsh, Cornish, Indian and the list goes on….
