Women's Voices & Food for Thought: Food as a bridge to generate change

Dr. Abdel's inspirational talk at Food for Thought

On the occasion of International Women's Day, on March 8th 2022 14:00-17:00 CET, Crossing Borders, as part of their work as Head of Danish ALF Network, will host a Food for Thought session dedicated to Women's Voices.

The event will take place at Studenterhuset (Købmagergade 52, Copenhagen) and will count on the presence of different pioneering women from the EuroMed region such as singer and spoken word artist Pearl Cutten, drum performer Simona Abdallah, TEDx speaker Nora Al Bitar, artist and spoken word poet Sarah Diallo, and ALF Danish Network’s focal point Alba Navas. While the voices of these women are heard, One Bowl community kitchen and Syrian chef Zaki Abbara will cook a delicious meal that all attendees will share.

Food for Thought is a series of events that enable people to be inspired by each other's life experiences through storytelling in a stimulating and inclusive environment, while enjoying multicultural dinners. These events have proven their power to bring people together and create room for conversation across cultures and points of view. As part of the series, previous sessions have taken place in February and early March focusing on migration and on genuine youth inclusion in their societies’ development.
