Peace-Meal Dinners aim to create space for sharing food and recognising the daily efforts of peacebuilders and communities in nourishing peace. Naan Wa Namak is about connection through sharing food.
Naan Wa Namak recognises the tireless, everyday peacebuilding efforts across the Afghan Australian Community, and celebrates the humility, courage and strength of the people of Afghanistan.
Naan Wa Namak holds a lot of meaning to people in Afghanistan. It evokes and signifies coming together. It evokes the nostalgia of home and the power of sharing food to support bonding and trust.
During the evening Essan led reflections, shared beautiful poetry, we enjoyed music, danced and nourished our minds, spirits as well as our stomaches!
The event is part of Peace-Meal Peacebuilding, co-hosted by Alternatives to Violence Victoria. Funded by the Jan de Voogd Trust. We met on the unceded lands of the Kulin Nation and pay our respects to Elders past and present.
