Eat Talk Connect


Community collaboration – Richmond, BC – the City of Richmond Public Art Program – collaboration with Richmond Multicultural Community Services

EAT TALK CONNECT was a ‘power lunch’ for new Canadians and Richmond city officials. 20 new Canadians cook homemade, packed lunches for two. These meals are beautifully decorated and bought by 20 Richmond City officials in a silent auction. The officials and new comers were paired to sit down for an intimate lunch and shared conversation about resettlement, local customs and experiences of building a more inclusive community.

The event provided a rare opportunity for city officials to hear, first-hand, experiences of immigration, and provides new Canadians access to decision makers to reflect on the policies and programs that shape their lives.
