As we prepare to face the experiences and difficulties that come with climate change, we also need to explore our role in welcoming newcomers into our community.

Are we good at it? What can we learn from each other? What else do we need to do?

North Melbourne resident Lorna Hannan invites you to be among special guests Mitselal and Kidan as they host a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony.

Ethiopian coffee ceremonies are much more than sipping a cup of joe. It’s an important cultural ritual that’s been passed from generation to generation and a major sign of respect and friendship.

Come and join us in telling your stories of welcoming.

Ruth Crow Corner is part of a series of monthly events in the lead up to Refuge, a five-year project focused on community preparedness for climate change disasters.

Lorna Hannan is a North Melbourne resident of over 50 years. An activist, storyteller and former Melbourne City Councillor, she remains deeply engaged with ideas of community connectedness, social inclusion and dissemination of ideas.

Supported by –  the City of Melbourne through Arts House.
