Join us for a day of eating, cooking, and storytelling. Learn to make borek, bulani, ashak and Kubba and dive into the worlds of Ying, Rose, Dilly, Shaza, Sibel, and Muzhgan.

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.

Starting with a seed project in 2020— the second cohort of Shepparton Culture Kitchen is an intergenerational, intercultural group of 6 local diverse women including; Sibel Kaymak, Ying Zhou, Shaza Alsmail, Muzhgan Qazikhil, Rusminiwati and Dilrukshi Peiris.

As experts with their own lived experiences, the women draw on their personal stories to build and diversify local knowledge around food cultures and healthy eating.

Drawing on their own stories, cultures and hereditary knowledges, the women will be hosting a day full of cooking, eating and storytelling in a program full of a range of culinary experiences.

*Vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options will be available.

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.
