The evening will begin with an Ethiopian coffee ceremony hosted by Abdul, the proprietor / owner of Konjo Restaurant and Crafts.
Then there will be "speed dating" / networking activity - where people get to network and meet others the have not met before.
Abdul will then tell his story - migrating to Australia, starting a craft business in Footscray, and his vision to build industry to support migrants in Melbourne and crafters in Ethiopia.
Abdul may also introduce some local African artists (provided he can convince them to come;)
There will be an organisers update by Gregor and Dean.
The night will conclude with updates on emerging projects and time for anyone to propose new projects.
All are welcome to come!
