Rose has been able to find connection through Shepparton Culture Kitchen and learning about new foods after arriving in Shepparton from Indonesia. Initially moving to Shepparton to be close to friends, she has now built friendships within her neighbourhood, which inspires her to be involved in her local community through joining a range of community hubs, like Shepparton Culture Kitchen.
Shepparton Culture Kitchen is a significant arts initiative centering the diverse voices of local diaspora communities, to build a future in which our communities are connected through empowering, healthy, and sustainable food culture.
After joining the Hub community, Rose has learned a lot from various cultures from all over the world and considers herself lucky to be within their midst. In her opinion, the Shepparton Culture Kitchen is amazing for mothers like herself, who enjoy cooking and cooking with others. Rose is grateful to join the Shepparton Culture Kitchen and being able to enjoy great food!
MAV is proud to partner with Greater Shepparton City Council and POD Studio to elevate the voices of local, culturally diverse artists and community and to be a conduit for community self-determination.
