Symbolism of The Movement Kitchen


How can we create solidarity within community? In my kitchen, we build solidarity with the most vulnerable in our societies. Otherwise, our world will be in danger.

They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is a symbol of warmth, comfort, and security. It is where the meals are created – it fuels the bodies, minds and souls of friends, families and communities all over the world. Kitchens are not sedate and quiet rooms. They are rooms filled with energy, aroma and texture. The kitchen has always been a symbol of many things: the place where we nourish ourselves, where we come together, celebrate important milestones, share experiences, and create new understandings. It is a place often associated with the word conviviality; a word that means festivity, joviality, cordiality and friendliness. Regardless of other differences, all cultures across the world (and through time) view the kitchen with the same significance. The kitchen itself, once tucked away from sight, has become the center; the place where we do many things, where we carry on rituals and traditions, create memories, tell stories and live important moments of everyday life.


The Movement Kitchen is a place of healing, change and transformation. I encourage everyone to join me in this space to build solidarity and create movement, memories and connections of a lifetime within our communities and with each other. 

To resilience, gumption and collective effervescence - welcome to my kitchen,
