Our Table - Michelle Darmody from The Cake Cafe , Dublin and Ellie Kisyombe a Direct Provision activist from Malawai discuss their not-for-profit café in the Project Arts Centre, Temple Bar, Dublin
Our Table is a community-driven, non-profit project aiming to highlight the need to end direct provision in Ireland. Our goal is to facilitate change through conversation over food.
Our Table aims to create nurturing and empathic spaces where people can gain skills, are paid a wage and can gain knowledge of the Irish food industry. It is a non-profit, non-denominational organisation that aims to build an awareness of food in multicultural Ireland and to highlight that the current system of Direct Provision is deeply flawed.
We at Our Table find the system abhorrent and want to help to end it. We aim to build a greater awareness of direct provision within the wider Irish public and to induce a sense of anger within them. We create spaces where information is shared and obtained, and want to open conversations with political leaders.
