Dalston Solidarity Cafe is a space to connect a diversity of collectives, realities and individuals who by sharing their knowledge and experience will be able to offer a range of mutualistic practices. These can help the community to improve our condition and happiness, beyond the “survival mode” today’s society forces us to be in.
What we practically do is rescuing food, turning it into delicious meals, serving it together with drinks on a “pay what you can basis down to £0“. Over the arc of the day, we also host a workshop, generally hold by other local mutual aid groups and collectives, to then conclude with a film screening.
The cafe takes place every second Saturday of the month at Halkevi, the Kurdish community centre in Dalston (London), with open assemblies every Tuesdays before and after the event.
You can find us on Instagram, Facebook and Mastodon.
Otherwise,if you prefer, you can follow us through this blog and/or our newsletter.
This project doesn’t have funding and is run by volunteers, so any help in any form is always welcome.
Love & Solidarity,
