Event description

Description

Welcome Dinners connect newly arrived people including migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and international students with established Australians over a potluck-style meal in a family home or a trusted community space.

In association with Multicultural NSW, Bayside Council, City of Sydney Council, Greensquare Mirvac and Landcom, South Eastern Community Connect and Sydney Multicultural Community Services, joiningthedots will be hosting a special Community Welcome Dinner at The Social Corner on Friday 9th March from 6:30pm until 8:30pm.

Please bring your favourite dish or one traditional to your culture to share, “pot luck style”, with the other people who will be seated at your table. You will be asked to tell a short story about your dish as a way of introducing yourself to your table mates.

This is a family friendly event and no alcohol will be served.

The Community Welcome Dinner will provide an opportunity for people from all walks of life and different cultures to share great food, to make new connections in their own neighbourhood and to celebrate inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging.

Entry is FREE and everyone is invited to come along but spaces are limited so please register to secure your spot!

Any severe allergies that we have been informed about before hand will be brought to everyone’s attention.
