*Please note that this is a women only (trans & non-binary inclusive) event.

Come along to share a meal and learn about ways you can support Ubuntu Women Shelter or be supported by them. The food will be served at 4pm, first come first served! Meals are FREE or pay what you can. All donations will go to Ubuntu Women Shelter.

This community meal is a collaboration between the Ubuntu Women Shelter and The Art School. This event is part of Ubuntu outreach into the community. Ubuntu Women Shelter is set up to meet the emergency and short term accommodation needs of destitute women (trans and non- binary inclusive) with no recourse to public funds. We currently ensure women can be safely hosted across the city and are working to acquiring our own dedicated building to meet this need. Ubuntu work is reparations work. The needs of the women we support have been overlooked by systemic erasure. Their destitution is normalised. We believe this is one legacy of the unacknowledged historical violence of colonisation. Ubuntu work is witnessing their humanity.

The meals show our commitment to a world with no borders. The theme of this meal is the incredible life of Queen Nanny of the Maroons . We will be cooking Jamaican (Caribbean) recipes, and there will be an open mic for us to share our stories and reach across borders to envision a kinder more humane world.
