Kitchen

A centre for creative migrations

kitchen_smallWe imagine a place of dialogue, between those who travelled to us and those who travelled away. A place to sit, drink tea or good coffee, share stories. We call this Kitchen, a core space in any “home”, where recipes are exchanged, taste developed and honest exchange is possible. Food is an essential cultural instrument, the beginning of sharing. The staffing and the menu reflect the diversity of Rijeka. Kitchen becomes an open workshop in exchanges of ideas, habits, prejudices. An informal pulse that merges and gathers. A workplace: a studio for developing art, a centre for research, a gallery for exhibitions, in the borderlands between city history and contemporary reality. As a platform for encountering migration experiences from other parts of Europe.
