The Welcome Dinner Project also organises and run community welcome dinners in partnership with councils, sponsors and community organisations. These larger events are a great way to celebrate a community milestone, launch a new initiative or just get a taste of the project with lots of your neighbours! People who are new to Australia as well as established residents are encouraged to come along to these events and bring your favourite plate of food to share.

Some past community welcome dinners and large events include:

Open Marrickville Festival Welcome Dinner
Melbourne Welcome Dinner @ The Couch
Welcome Dinner Project Exhibition on Martin Place
Lakemba Harmony Week
Redfern Community Centre Welcome Dinner

Want to get involved? You don’t need to have signed up for a welcome dinner; just click on the event you want to attend below and you will be shown how to register.

Please get in contact with us if you have a great idea for a community welcome dinner or would like to partner with us. We love designing beautiful welcome dinners that join the dots in community!
