Passion For Difference (PFD), a multicultural parent and child care organization in Norway, will partner with the Ghana Union Vestland & Associates to host a food and cultural exhibition in Bergen, Norway.
The first culinary and cultural event will take place on Saturday, October 16, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. at the Bergen International Cultural Center in Norway.
The event aims to showcase some traditional Ghanaian dishes as well as other African and continental dishes for everyone ages 6 and up.
The exhibition will also be used as a platform to raise children of Ghanaian descent born in Norway and showcase some of the best cultural practices from both Africa and Europe-Africa.
Speaking to the press, PFD founder Gifty Ohenewaa Nordbø said that the children are the future leaders and therefore there is a need to learn the best cultural practices that will shape their lives in Norway now and in the future.
“The main goal for it [October] The event is to involve our children and others in our daily activities such as clothing, food and culture, ”she emphasized.
“Our children come into contact with Norwegian food and culture every day at school, with their friends and even at home. The challenge has always been how we, as parents who come from cultures (whether Nigeria, Ghana, Liberian, etc.) that are usually different from those of Norway, include our children in our culture and customs and help them find a balance and to combine both. This first culinary and cultural event is a unique opportunity to introduce our children and their friends to something about our culture and customs and to help them understand and accept differences. The opportunity to meet and prepare food with the children is just the beginning of the learning process, ”Gifty Ohenewaa Nordbø told the press.
Gifty Nordbø emphasized the importance of the event, which she is optimistic of will create a conducive atmosphere and arena for interaction with children in the country.
She added that some Ghanaian cooking utensils, artifacts, clothing, food, etc. will be on display at the exhibition for the children to see.
The public event is expected to be honored by Norwegians, Ghanaians and other nationals from the African continent.
Speakers expected at the event include representatives from Bergen Municipality, Frifond, Ghana Union Vestland & Associates, Church of Pentecost International, Norway and other partners.
The exhibition is sponsored by Frifond with the support of the Bergen Municipality.
