This pop-up, not-for-profit dinner project gives migrant, refugee and asylum seeker women the chance to gain practical experience in the hospitality industry.

Mazi Mas dinners are a celebration of the women’s cultural and culinary backgrounds, and money from ticket and alcohol sales is used to pay participants award wages. Dinners are held throughout the year in existing restaurants and cafés, giving women the chance to develop their skills in a professional environment.

Mazi Mas means ‘with us’ in Greek, and the events are an invitation to come together over a meal. We’re into that.
