The Sabadell City Council suggests approaching its citizens to other cultures. To do so, a series of gastronomic events will be held during the lunch buffet at Escola d’Hosteleria, Vapor Llonch (Ctra. de Barcelona, 208 bis, Sabadell). The series will last for almost a month, starting November 10th till December 5th. Under the title “Mes Gastronòmic Intercultural”, the series will offer the recipes resulting from the exchange of knowledge between the school’s students and staff, which includes 7 women from Eastern Europe, Maghreb, Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, and who are member of Espais Dona Sabadell. During four weeks you will be able to taste a whole bunch of recipes from Europe, Maghreb, Sub-Saharan and Latin cuisine.
This initiative is launched by the Regidoria de Drets Civils in collaboration with Escola d’Hosteleria, Vapor Llonch, and it is part of the Sabadell Anti-Rumour Network project. What they are trying to do this time is: by using the transmission of culinary knowledge, try to break the prejudices towards other cultures and strengthen the bond between people of different race. Moreover, Vapor Llonch’s students and staff, have been trained as anti-rumour agents in order to be able to fight these prejudices.
The Sabadell City Council takes part in the C4I “Communication for Integration” project, along with 10 other European cities. The project aims to create a network of social actors named “Anti-Rumour Agents”, to fight the rumours, prejudices and stereotypes that affect immigrant population. It is also part of the project to design and implement a long-term and short-term awareness strategy.
