Food for Thought

Lecture

About this experience

Food For Thought enables refugee and migrant chefs in Denmark to share their knowledge and stories with other like-minded community members​,​ including both locals and internationals. This is done by making food that is representative of their culture​,​ eating together​,​ listening to a story and telling each other stories in an informal setting. Food For Thought provides an exciting space for people from different backgrounds to share their life stories we want to enable people to learn from and be inspired by each other’s experiences through storytelling in a safe​,​ stimulating and inclusive social environment. The idea stems from the belief that each one of us has a unique life story that’s worth sharing​,​ and from which we can learn a lot. The idea is motivated by the saying "I tell my story​,​ therefore​,​ I am."
