Our New Neighbours – Project phase II.

The second phase of our project was launched at the end of 2019 with preparatory works for two key activities to be implemented in 2020:


Taste the World!
A gastronomic journey around the world

Encouraged by the popularity of our gastronomy event in the first phase of the project and inspired by the skills of “our new neighbours”, we decided to launch a series of cooking classes, featuring the dishes of other regions of the world. Our instructors will be people who came to Budapest from these regions and live, study or work in Ferencváros. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to prepare the Moroccan, Tibetan, Indian, African, and Middle Eastern dishes.

More information will be provided shortly.


Participatory Action Research (PAR)

We are planning a participatory action research (PAR) project with the maximum involvement of foreigners connected to the district. PAR, based on its emancipatory principles, strives to foster social change in relation to a particular group. The research results serve as the basis for actions addressing salient issues pertinent to the given community. The expansion of participation of the subjects of the research to its various phases implies the democratization of knowledge production. Members of the community concerned become co-researchers and are involved in the decision-making process related to the project.
