Stories worth sharing

Food For Thought

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 life experiences through storytelling in a safe, stimulating and inclusive social environment, with a delicious dinners.

The Concept

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 also resonates with the saying: I tell my story, therefore, I am.

This flagship is more necessary now than ever before, as many European communities are struggling with integrating and facilitating the newcomers to their societies. They are struggling to help those newly arrived migrants and refugees to settle and feel safe and comfortable in their respective societies. These processes are ongoing and are reflective of a steep uphill climb as negative social and political narratives remain dominant in the mainstream media. Therefore, it is up to us – civil society and engaged citizens to challenge these narratives by bringing people together rather than standing idly by and letting them be separated.
