As a part of our commitment to community outreach, we would like to welcome women in and around Paisley to our monthly community meal, starting on Sunday 8th of March to celebrate International Women’s Day.

These meals will bring together migrant women in our communities and women from the local area to get to know each other over a delicious, hot meal. Children are welcome to come along!

This community meal is a collaboration between the Ubuntu Women Shelter and The Scotland – Zambia Partnership. This event is part of Ubuntu outreach into the community. Ubuntu Women Shelter is set up to meet the emergency and short term accommodation needs of destitute women (trans and non- binary inclusive) with no recourse to public funds. We currently ensure women can be safely hosted across the city and are working to acquiring our own dedicated building to meet this need. Ubuntu work is reparations work. The needs of the women we support have been overlooked by systemic erasure. Their destitution is normalised. We believe this is one legacy of the unacknowledged historical violence of colonisation. Ubuntu work is witnessing their humanity.

Travel expenses can be provided.

The Art School is a fully accessible space with a lift and WC for wheelchair users. If you have any questions about accessibility or the event please contact: communitymeal@theartschool.co.uk

 

 

Each meal will have a themed recipe and will be in celebration of a particular woman’s life and our commitment to a world with no borders. There will be an open mic for us to share our stories and reach across borders to envision a kinder more humane world.
