Description

You're invited to our Docklands End of Year Community Welcome Dinner!

Do you love trying foods from different cultures? Are you new to Australia and want to meet more local friends? Do you want to build a welcoming and inclusive community?

Then join us at our Community Welcome dinner in Docklands and help us celebrate the end of another wonderful year of community and connection!

A Community Welcome Dinner provides opportunities for new and established Australians, people from all walks of life, to share delicious food and make new connections. Cook your favourite food or bring a dish from your culture and share it with us at a pot luck-style dinner. Be touched and entertained by stories of life, love and change from the people you meet. Find out how much our multicultural and multifaith communities have in common. You will be surprised!

Entry is FREE and everyone is invited. Places are limited, so register now to book your seat!

Organised by The Welcome Dinner Project in partnership with City of Melbourne.
