Bread & Butter is a monthly dinner and storytelling event designed to make you think deeply about social issues. A new storyteller every month will share a personal story with an intimate audience in the dining room at the Centre for Stories. Come along and make new friends, hear a new story, and get to know your community. Compulsory: open ears and an open mind. This month’s storyteller is Zenatalla Ibrahim.

On the menu is a mix of Egyptian dishes, including: fattoush, falafel, rice, shish tawook, baklava and more.

PLEASE NOTE: We always provide a vegetarian option, however it may not always be possible to provide meals for other dietary requirements (e.g. vegan, allergies, gluten free). Notification of any dietary requirements (this can be done when purchasing a ticket online) must be made at least 72 hours before the event to ensure enough preparation time for our cooks.

Zenatalla Ibrahim

Zenatalla Ibrahim is near completion of her dental degree at the University of Western Australia. She’s particularly passionate about accessible dentistry, rural healthcare and providing services to those in need. Zenatalla is deeply entrenched in many areas, including her social justice and advocacy work, and is heavily involved with the student guild at her university, in particular their Access Department which assists and represents students with chronic physical and mental illnesses and/or disabilities. Zenatalla is well known for using her voice to speak on intersectional feminist issues, featuring in TEDxPerth 2018, discussing the empowerment of the modern Muslim woman. When she isn’t studying or fixing teeth, she’s creating - an avid visual artist and poet drawing strength from raw vulnerability and connection. A regular attendee and feature poet for spoken word Perth, her poetry often explores social inequity, political issues, mental health and identity. Nuances and imagery are all well and good but when it comes to powerful truths, that’s all from the chest. Follow Zenatalla on Instagram: @thesundriedapricot
