Participants of Arts Milton’s Friendship Project gathered at Paramount Fine Foods on Saturday, March 24th for a final meal in celebration of the Project’s completion.
The Project connected 30 newcomer families (from varying countries) with 30 volunteer hosts with a passion of culture, and sent them out together into the community to enjoy free art activities. Activities included outings to theatre shows, dance and music lessons, art and craft workshops, and cooking classes. On the Saturday in question, guests dined on traditional Lebanese food including fattoush salad, hummus and pita, falafel, and skewers of chicken and beef. Families mixed and mingled with new friends, playing musical chairs all throughout the evening. www.artsmilton.com
