SOS Malta SameDifference Project at Auberge de Castille

The Malta Independent - 4 December 2011 (SameDifference)


The SameDifference project, led by SOS Malta and co-financed through the European Refugee Fund Annual Programme 2011, will be launched at the Office of the Prime Minister, Auberge de Castille, at noon tomorrow.

The SameDifference aims to promote meaningful interaction between beneficiaries of international protection and different sectors of Maltese society, using food as a communication and bridging medium.

As part of the project, a team of cultural ambassadors, who have been recognised as refugees or been granted subsidiary protection status, have been trained in the handling of food. Over the next 18 months, these cultural ambassadors will visit various places and events in Malta and Gozo to share with the public a variety of international dishes that they will have cooked themselves.

The SameDifference team therefore extends an invitation to the public to come along and enjoy the dishes prepared by the cultural ambassadors.

SOS Malta believes that inclusive interaction between people of diverse backgrounds contributes to a society focused less on individual differences and more on shared experiences, SOS Malta believes.

Entrance to the event will be free and those attending are being asked to enter Castille through the Merchants Street entrance.
