The Interfaith Chef project comprised of three events in the City of Moreland with diverse communities sharing food, faith and culture. The first event centred around bread; how, where and when it is eaten across different cultures. The second event, “Street Food” provided an opportunity for a very diverse group to share stories about the role of food at faith celebrations and events. The final event provided a platform to have a more intimate discussion, using the conviviality of the table to discuss issues of conflict, migration, peace and reconciliation.

Anne Thoday created a ritual welcome feeding/ performance, Salt Water Sweet Water. This project reflected on the meeting of salt water and sweet water when the river was a major food source and meeting place for indigenous Australians before European settlement and industrialisation.
