Join us to celebrate the launch of the Rise Up! cookbook!
Food is one of the simplest paths to connection and care. Creating meals and sitting down around a collective dinner table is a memory that – despite coming from different experiences – unites us as humans. People from different cultures can learn about each other through the sharing of their respective recipes.
Teaming up with WEST of Windsor Inc., AWE presented a duo of workshops called Rise Up! in the Fall of 2021, facilitated by interdisciplinary artist and cultural worker, Jude Abu Zaineh.
Throughout these workshops, attendees had the opportunity to connect by sharing recipes and cultural traditions, and baked loaves of bread together, using recipes from the heritages of WEST’s participants.
To commemorate the project, a collaborative, community cookbook was designed by Jude Abu Zaineh. The publication is a compilation of participant and community recipe submissions.
