Roti, Zameen, Azaadi | Bread, Land, Freedom

Sun 30 June 2019

Project Cafe

"Bread, freedom and social justice!" was the cry that rallied the people in Egypt during the revolution in 2011. Bread punctuates our collective consciousness, our histories, our memories of home.

Ubuntu Women Shelter hosts a one-day bread-making session, sharing recipes from women from countries including India, The Gambia, Ethiopia, Somalia, Pakistan and Sudan. Where flour meets water, these simple ingredients come alive and transform as we share our creativity, stories, our knowledge and culture of bread and cuisines. Through bread bonds of kneading, proofing and baking, we allow ourselves to take back time and our means of production to ferment a no-borders existence.

11am – 4pm: The Bread Exchange - Hands-on baking session
Participants are encouraged to bring your own bread recipes and techniques from home. Limited to 20, with priority given to women with lived experience of borders. Lunch will be provided. Please send us recipes in advance (by 20 June) to if you have any specific ingredients you would like us to source and to prepare.

6pm-8pm: Breaking Bread and Borders
Join Ubuntu Women Shelter and invited guests, allies and people with lived experience of borders, to break bread and share nourishment. All welcome.

Both events take place at The Project Cafe. Travel expenses and childcare can be provided – please contact for more information.
