This is What We Eat At Home - An Online Photo Exhibition

by 3Pumpkins
7 - 30 May • 10:00am • Boon Lay

Follow six unique youths from culturally diverse backgrounds as they embark on a mission to document their families’ go-to home-cooked meals in a bid to preserve their heritage. Join us as we take you on a digital exhibition through the heartland of Boon Lay to view the uplifting stories of these youths.

This Is What We Eat At Home

Using mealtimes at home as a starting point, six children and youths from varied cultural backgrounds had embarked on journeys to discover and document their family histories.

The efforts of the Tak Takut Kids Club members culminate in an online photo exhibition. Visit their website to hear their stories of self-discovery, view photographs through their own unique perspectives and take home multicultural recipes to try out on your own.

The endeavour to put together the showcase is especially meaningful as the young creators generally hail from single-parent households or homes with ailing grandparents and busy working parents. In the face of these various challenges, these family units had nonetheless set aside time to come together to safeguard their cultural heritage.

Apart from this online exhibition, you can also support and participate in this programme by purchasing your very own This Is What We Eat At Home Food Journal! Use this journal to sketch and document your meals. It consists of over 20 exciting prompts to guide you through your food documentation processes and is lovingly made by the community at Tak Takut Kids Club. To find out more you may visit 3Pumpkins on their website.
