Culture in Conversation: Creating Inclusive Food Communities

The Sydney Environment Institute, FoodLab Sydney and the University of Sydney Union have partnered with YARN Australia to bring together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander with non-Indigenous communities for an evening of ceremony, performance, meaningful conversation and the sharing of food and stories.

Through the prism of food and the format of a yarn, communities across Sydney are invited to participate in a cross-cultural and meaningful conversation about inclusivity at this NAIDOC week event. We explore the following questions: what does an inclusive food community involve and what are some inhibitors and enablers of such communities? What can you do to create a more inclusive food community in the neighbourhoods in which you work, live and play? How do these concepts of inclusivity relate to the wider food justice and environmental justice movements?
