Welcome Dinner Project

The award winning Welcome Dinner Project launched in 2013, has held more than 200 welcome dinners in homes and community spaces across Australia. Involving more than 5,000 people, it has now become a social movement.

The project has a simple vision: to foster new and meaningful relationships between newly arrived people and established Australians over potluck style meals.

To register to attend or host a welcome dinner, go to the Welcome Dinner Project or email [email protected]. Everyone is welcome.
