Sweets: tastes and traditions from many cultures

Sweets Tastes and Traditions from many cultures, Immigration Museum Victoria

As part of the Melbourne Food and Wine festival and Cultural Diversity Week in March 2012 members of the Indian, Italian, Japanese, Mauritian and Turkish communities collaborated with the museum to explore the significance of sweets – sharing sweet stories, traditions and recipes.

The project piloted a new approach for exhibitions and festivals. The Museum worked collaboratively with 5 Victorian communities to produce a sweets-themed exhibition and festival, highlighting shared cultural traditions, rituals and contemporary practices.
