For Families Food

This Is What We Eat At Home – A 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 head to the heartland of Boon Lay to view the results of their hard work which takes the form of a visually arresting exhibition.


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 exhibition housed at their community void deck in Boon Lay. Swing by the showcase 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 the exhibition, you can also sign up for an experiential tour of the lively Boon Lay neighbourhood where a mix of ethnic grocery stores, a wet market, hawker centre and ground-up social organisations come together to form a unique and supportive ecosystem for residents’ young and old.
