The Cooking Pot



These images were taken at a fundraising event in Balham, that also marked the first phase of a new collaborative project between Linking Bridges and the Bent al-Reef women’s project in Nahalin, Palestine -the creation of a joint recipe book called The Cooking Pot: Dishes of Memories & Traditions. Activities included a lino printing workshop, henna painting and an opportunity to share recipes that will be included in the book.

Linking Bridges is a community organisation in South West London aiming to create a space for local women from various communities to connect and to empower themselves and others through training, events and collaborative projects with the Bent al-Reef women’s project.

In a next phase I will join Linking Bridges for their skype link up with the women in Nahalin to discuss the progress they have made at each end and to make some joint decisions that will help the book take shape.
