Closing Event – Breaking Bread
After a day of discussion, deep thinking and debate, the day ended with ‘Breaking Bread’.
Inspired by the ceramic work included in the accompanying Regional Futures exhibition by Somailian born Western Sydney artist Idil Abdullahi, guests were invited to make and break bread.
The Menu included Damper and Johnny Cakes, Scones and Somalian Anjelo bread. Accompanied by handmade jams, honey and condiments gathered from around the state, this event offered time for refelction and connection, to end this day feeling positive for the future.
