HELPING BRIDGE CULTURES IN MELBOURNE
Currently, refugees, international students and immigrants travelling to Australia have experienced a disjoint in cultures upon arrival. As a result, many of these individuals feel unsettled upon arrival, taking months to set up a decent life for themselves whilst juggling the challenges of full-time work in a new country.
The Setu Project aims to bridge the gap between Australians and International arrivals by providing them with an opportunity to share their story and culture through food. This involves videos, online material and cookbooks that assist in bringing a sense of community between cultures. Through this interaction, participants are able to connect to a diverse range of cultures settled in Australia gaining a wealth of knowledge whilst sharing their story, further educating society about the respect new Australians deserve.
