Come to a drop-in pop-up event filled with art and food that will introduce you to your newest neighbor! The Welcome Project is hosting our first pop-up dining experience, including Latin-American menu items and beverages as well as opportunities for art making. The ticket price will be include tamales and tostadas, cooked by local chefs who are refugees and immigrants from Guatamala and Mexico. Sangria and other beverage options will also be included.
These dinners are the start of our awareness and fund-raising campaign for the Welcome Market, a teaching kitchen and fresh produce marketplace in the second storefront at 2936 Colerain Ave. in Camp Washington.
The Welcome Project is a social enterprise that trains our newest neighbors in fabrication and art skills as well as store management while bringing new life to the business district of Camp Washington, Cincinnati. The Welcome Project works out of two storefronts next door to Wave Pool and is a collaboration between Wave Pool and Heartfelt Tidbits. Workshops, support sessions, and artistic outreach for immigrants, refugees, and the Camp Washington community are currently offered by this budding enterprise.
The Welcome Project space has a restaurant storefront attached but we need a complete rehab of the kitchen and marketplace to utilize it to it's fullest potential (design/architect plans in the works). The Welcome Market is a partnership with the Camp Washington Urban Farm, this storefront will offer fresh produce in a neighborhood that is currently a food desert. In the back of the marketplace will be a teaching kitchen. The women of The Welcome Project love to share their cooking and their stories through their food.
We need help to get the market off the ground. These dinners are a great way to learn more about the project and taste some of the foods that we are dreaming of serving.
Reserve a spot via eventbrite or purchase a ticket at the door.
