Book Launch: ‘Taste the World’ by Women’s Culture Exchange

1 Jan, 1970 at 12:00 am - 20 Dec, 2014 at 12:00 am

Join us for the launch of this much requested recipe book from the Women’s Culture Exchange!

Drop in throughout the afternoon for a hot drink and delicious tasters from the recipe book, plus the
chance to find out more about the project and buy the book. At 2pm there will be a presentation
from women involved in the project about making the recipe book.

Women’s Culture Exchange is a voluntary self-led support group for women who are from
asylum seeking or refugee backgrounds. There are 70 regular members involved in the group. We
hold weekly support meetings and activities to share and develop skills, to reduce social isolation,
build a strong social support network, gain awareness and access to local services and broader
educational and developmental opportunities.

Taste the World has arisen from the women’s desire to share their cooking skills, to learn from
each others’ cultures and to contribute within the wider community. A successful Big Lottery grant
earlier this year has enabled us to run a 10 week project to create this book with support from
artists and designers. All proceeds raised will go towards the continuing development of Women’s
Culture Exchange. For further information contact [email protected]

Venue: New Art Exchange, 39-41 Gregory Boulevard, Hyson Green, NG7 6BE

‘Taste the World’ will also be available to buy from 18th-21st December at City Arts, Exhibition and
Crafts Market (11-13 Hockley, NG1 1FH)

‘Taste the World’ has been kindly supported by the Big Lottery Fund through Awards for All,
Nottingham Women’s Centre and Nottingham City Council.
