Description
My Sisters' Kitchen is a weekly program where women and children from all backgrounds come together to participate in arts and cooking activities, sharing stories, recipes, skills and friendship.

The program become a wonderful place for exchange of all sorts of arts and crafts practices across cultures. In 2014 we've learnt how to weave rag rugs, knit with material scraps, bead and sew all sorts of outfits - baby clothes, dresses, skirts, shirts, aprons and even a ball gown. The children have been busy making toys from recyled materials. Paddle pop sticks, toilet rolls, paper and material scraps have been transformed into collages, rain makers and other works of art.

The My Sisters' Kitchen program still returns to its roots as a cooking program every few weeks with participants sharing recipes and stories from across the globe. In the coming months My Sisters' Kitchen is launching its social enterprise kitchen on wheels which will pop-up in different locations offering delicious food and opportunities to make and share art!

My Sisters' Kitchen is an arts and social cohesion program of Darwin Community Arts and receives funding from the Australian Government Department of Social Services
