Hygge - An Unquiet Mind

photographed at One Kind House 

Hygge is a series of dining experiences that seek to gather strangers and friends around a meal for a conversation on issues that are pertinent to our society. These non-profit dinners are a labour of love by Pam and Wex, a couple who was inspired by the swedish concept of Hygge (pronounced hue-gar) and a chai stand in Melbourne.

I had the privilege of collaborating and offering my help at the recent Hygge, titled 'An Unquiet Mind', which centered on the issue of mental illness. The shared meal provided a safe space for people to share about their own experiences, ask questions and begin a conversation about the oft-misunderstood complexities of mental illness.

Every part of the programme was carefully planned, right down to the menu which creatively challenged negative elements like bitterness and brokenness in our culture. It was an eye-opening experience to be privy to the dedication and heart of this young team.
