The Welcome Dinner Project is a national initiative that invites established locals and people new to Australia share a meal together. Everyone brings food to share that may be culturally or personally significant. We find that the friendships that begin over a Welcome Dinner help newly arrived people feel welcome in their new community as well as being very rewarding for established locals.

To come to the Peace Festival Welcome Dinner please email

The Welcome Dinner will be held at UTAS , 6pm-9pm on Saturday 29 July. 

The dinner is run by a team of facilitators. Expect a fun night of great food and conversation with people from many different cultural backgrounds. 

The event is free to attend, all we ask is that let us know that you are coming and that you bring a plate of food to share. 

This is an alcohol free event - please don't bring any alcoholic drinks. 

Once you email you'll be sent more details about the event.
