Migration Matters Festival




Arts and Culture, Migration Matters


Rock the HotPot, is a project presented by Asia-Art-Activism (Annie Jael Kwan, Cuong Pham and Howl Yuan) in collaboration with Arts Catalyst and Migration Matters Festival. It centres food as politics and opens up discussions around the local, migration, identity and belonging. The pandemic and social distancing has meant we have to reconvene in 2021.

During this separation, we continue to build community with an online resource initiative, World Wide Wontons, through the collective sharing of recipes, stories, and histories of food - a powerful connector across borders. We invite you to join us in celebrating our diverse practices of food-making.

Asia-Art-Activism is a cross-disciplinary and intergenerational network of artists, curators and academics investigating ‘Asia’, ‘art’ and ‘activism’ in the UK through research, dialogue, practice and collective work.
