Event Details

The Welcome Dinner Project in Launceston!

Launceston local community members are invited to take part in this special event on Saturday the 7th April from 6 pm. People who are new to Australia as well as established residents are encouraged to come along and bring your favourite dish to share.

This community Welcome Dinner in Launceston is a collaboration between The Welcome Dinner Project (an initiative of non-profit organisation joiningthedots) together with the University of Tasmania. 


The Welcome Dinner Project aims to enable newly arrived people and established Australians to meet one another over a pot-luck shared meal. This project is spreading rapildly throughout Australia, creating a platform for connections between people from diverse cultures! Welcome Dinners are always guided by trained Welcome Dinner Project Facilitators, so that any language barriers and other differences can be navigated in a safe and welcoming space. Approximately half the participants at any dinner are newly arrived people (migrants, international students or refugees) and half are local Australians. Participants have the opportunity to talk about why they chose the dish that they brought. What you will find at a Welcome Dinner is a rediscovery of our common humanity by sharing our food, talking about our interests and dreams for the future. These interactions create a warm and enjoyable environment where new friendships, community links and supportive connections can develop. This is a great opportunity for people to meet others in their local area, without any barriers. 

This Community Welcome Dinner in Launceston is to be held on Saturday evening 7th April at 6pm. Local community members are invited to attend.

**FREE ENTRY: Please bring a plate of food traditional to your culture as the dinner will be a pot luck shared meal. Cold Drinks provided.

Number of places available are limited so please do not delay in reserving your free tickets via this page.
