Cultural Dishes + Bytes: A Virtual Food Story & Dinner

In partnership with MSVU Art Gallery, Safura Syed and Gurneet Dhami, two women of colour and MSVU graduate students in Applied Human Nutrition, are hosting a virtual art dinner workshop for MSVU Applied Human Nutrition students (undergraduate and graduate) who self-identify as Indigenous, Black or People of Colour, International students and those with a racial and ethnic background from under-represented groups.

Gurneet and Safura have invited Halifax-based artist Stephanie Yee to participate in the online gathering, which will include discussion of culture, food and dietetics. This is intended to be a closed space for BIPOC individuals to discuss cultural foods, professional journeys and apply arts-based perspectives to share stories.

How to participate
This online workshop is free to attend but advanced registration is required and space is limited. Confirmed participants will receive a $10 grocery store gift card to offset the cost of preparing a meal for the gathering. If you are interested in attending, please submit this form by February 8. More information about this gathering will be shared with registered participants via email in advance of the workshop.
