Description

The Welcome Dinner Project is coming to South Bank!

The Welcome Dinner Project QLD - Family Barbeque (BBQ) & 2018 Launch will provide an opportunity for people from all walks of life and different cultures to share great food, to make new connections and to celebrate inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging.

The event will be an opportunity to spend time with past and future dinner participants from across Brisbane City, share stories and learn about other cultures in a meaningful and fun way. The BBQ is also be a great way to learn more about the project and kickstart 2018. You will also be able to meet the new Volunteer and Coordination teams.

This event will be a little different to a typical Welcome Dinner/Lunch as we will be providing a free BBQ for all attendees to say thank you for your patience and support.

However, do feel free to bring some food to share to complement the meal (snacks/nibbles, drinks, desserts).

This event is being held in association with Grill'd Southbank who are kindly donating some food and volunteers to cook the BBQ as part of our Local Matters feature in January 2018.

Entry is FREE and everyone is invited to come along but please reserve to secure your seat.

No ticket is required - but you must register your intent to come along for catering purposes. Each member of a family group or group of friends must be registered individually.

If you cannot make it on the day, and would like to contribute to connecting more people in 2018, we would appreciate a small donation via our #WelcomeYourWay campaign:

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Getting to Picnic Island Green is easy with numerous parking, public and active transport options available. You can park in the undercover car park; catch a train to South Bank Station, bus to South Bank Busway Station, CityCat or ferry; or take advantage of the precinct’s CityCycle stations. Picnic Island Green is located at the southern end of South Bank Parklands in front of Mado Turkish Restaurant.

What if I can’t communicate well in English?

The purpose of the Welcome Dinner Project is to come together in spite of barriers such as language, and exchange in other ways. The volunteers at the event will assist with this.

I have a food allergy. How will this be catered for?

As part of the introductions at the event, guests will be informed of the ingredients in the dishes. Everyone is encouraged to be aware of their own allergies or dietary requirements and not to risk anything they are not sure of. Any severe allergies that we have been informed about beforehand will be brought to everyone’s attention.

Will alcohol be served?

All Welcome Dinners and Welcome Dinner Project events are alcohol free.

Can children attend?

Children are very welcome and are invited to take part in all aspects of the event, but they MUST be supervised by their own parent / guardian at all times. Please register the details of the children you intend to bring when you register yourself.
