A Seat at the Table by Panni Loh
Cohesion Sheffield is mostly out and about talking to businesses, voluntary, community, faith and statutory sector organisations about what actions they are planning to make our city more cohesive. We then document these and are building a body of knowledge about how Sheffield is working together and what still needs to be done. Sometimes we hold events such as the Cohesion Conference in March and we’re planning an October Cohesion Collaboration seminar for organisations that have joined the Cohesion network.
A Seat at the Table was a different approach and open to anyone that wanted to join in, held in Sheffield Millenium Galleries. It gave an opportunity to meet others and speak about the diversity in Sheffield through food. We were delighted as all tables were full and people came aged 8-80 and from over 10 cultural backgrounds including White British. This 2 minute video gives a snapshot of the event. We also gathered some loved 200 word stories about people cooking eating/sharing food together-something we all have in common.
