Sunday Supper Club

Sunday Supper Club is part of an ongoing practice of gathering, nourishing and encouraging deep relationships within local community. Specifically, this gathering has become a space for the formation and celebration of queer family, radical politics, and community activist care. 

Most Sundays I open my home to the artist, activist, queer communities I participate in for dinner, conversation and bonding. It is a space where I cultivate comfort, joy and energetic restoration for regular participants. Each week a thematic prompt is proposed, some generated by me as the artist/curator, and sometimes by request from active members of the group. These prompts can be responses to the political climate, as in My Grandparents Were Lebanese Immigrants Edition, or simple directed at a desired sensory, visual or community experience, as in Comfort Foods Edition, which I hosted after participation with several members in a notably intense day of protest against white supremacists in downtown Portland (pictured).

Sunday Supper Club is ongoing with regular weekly gatherings most Sundays since 2016.
