The group, all of whom currently call Southwark home, includes refugees, migrants, asylum seekers and other local residents, who came together to share stories, recipes and food. Over four workshops with artist Saima Rasheed and mother tongues, a local and global multidisciplinary collective, the young people explored local history archives, painted with herbs and spices, and translated their own recipes of home through multiple forms of media to create a visual recipe book that brings different cultures into one place.
Artists: mother tongues and Saima Rasheed
Participants: Students from the Bosco Centre
MA curators: Alexa Chow, Kaia Goodenough, Chloe Hughes, Amani Mitha, Yujia Wang, AA Xie, Sarah Yang and Jenny Zhang
The book will be launched at Southwark Park Galleries on Saturday 7 May 2-5 pm, in a celebration of the work created by the group.
