As part of March 21st Curious Works will launch Series 2 of the fantastic and much loved Meet+Eat project: a new collection of short documentary films, made with the communities of South-Western Sydney and Hume in Northern Melbourne. Meet+Eat is an online documentary series that celebrates the extraordinary and culturally rich lives of diverse Australians through a stunning collection of beautifully crafted and intimate films.
The intercultural Meet+Eat documentaries encourage a deep and personal conversation about diversity in our communities. Each episode uses the act of sharing a meal as a way of getting people from different walks of life to sit down and have a yarn.
At its core, Meet+Eat is about celebrating diversity. During production, CuriousWorks utilized its award-winning community model to work directly with families and community groups from two of Australia’s most culturally rich and diverse area.
