Say.kitchen is a café, gallery and events spaces. The ‘say’ in say.kitchen stands for South Australian Youth, while the ‘kitchen’ represents the gathering space in a home where food, companionship and conversation are shared.
Say.kitchen is: A service hub that provides young people with individualised, wrap-around support and access to housing assistance. St John’s Youth Services’ Next Step program is at the centre of say.kitchen, supporting young people to move out of homelessness and succeed in the private rental market, and connecting young people with resources, opportunities and community.
A café specialising in dishes crafted from indigenous ingredients, which is open to the public and available for functions. Managed by Bush tukka pty ltd, the say.kitchen café provides young people with accredited hospitality training and real-world work experience.
A gallery that provides exhibition space for young artists, particularly those from Aboriginal or New Arrival backgrounds, and LGBTIQ young people. The gallery’s focus is on inclusion, and ensuring young people outside of the mainstream are not excluded from representation. Exhibiting artists are not charged a fee to display their work, and no commission is collected from their sale.
