Symbolism of The Movement Kitchen
How can we create solidarity within community? In this kitchen, we build solidarity with the most vulnerable in our societies.
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.
This is the embodiment of TMK as a human and as a place to gather, heal, and transform. I encourage all humans 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 The Movement Kitchen,
