The first edition of JUSTdish, a storytelling dinner with human rights defenders
On October 3rd, Justice and Peace Netherlands together with Juni Café in Het Nutshuis will host the first edition of JUSTdish (or geRECHT in Dutch), a series of storytelling dinners featuring human rights activists from around the world.
The storytelling dinner, a 6-course meal prepared by environmentally-conscious Juni Café, will take the audience on a journey to Colombia and Venezuela through the eyes of two journalists working on the front line of human rights. Throughout six courses, the audience will learn about the important work of human rights defenders, their lives, and their countries of origin through stories and the food served.
About JUSTdish / geRECHT
The vision behind JUSTdish stems from the idea to bring people together, not only to enjoy food from countries around the world, but to learn more about human rights. By offering human rights defenders an informal platform to talk about their work, we hope to create more awareness and respect for the valuable work of human rights activists here in the Netherlands and bring to light the risk and dangers these brave activists encounter while defending the rights and freedoms of others.
About Juni Café
Juni Café, situated in the historical Het Nutshuis building, is a café dedicated to creating positive impact for the environment, from sourcing its food to consumption. Questions like ‘Where does our food come from?‘, ‘What does it take to get it here?’, ‘Should we go for local, fair trade or organic?’, ‘How can we prepare certain products to optimise their taste?’, and ‘How can we minimise waste?’ are questions that occupy Juni Café daily and provides guidance when making choices for their ingredients and menus.
We see food as a powerful connecting instrument and are hoping to bring people closer together through the act of sharing food
By purchasing seasonal products and trying to be as close to ‘no-waste’ as possible, Juni ensures its customers enjoy delicious and sustainably-sourced food.
Juni Café will prepare all courses for the JUSTdish / geRECHT storytelling dinners.
