A Picnic In Apart
Quek Jia Qi

You are invited. In a pandemic that has set us physically apart, join us for a virtual picnic to exchange our food stories together as we explore: How do we relate to food and our relationships during this uncertain time? How can food be an embodied knowledge to access our narratives? How can we gather apart?
Food has always been a form of sustenance for survival. It is nourishing be it in the act of preparation, consumption or sharing. At times, food can be a source of comfort for our physical and mental wellbeing. As we reimagine the domestic duty of cooking for care, hospitality and solidarity, join us as we gather, eat and share our stories, recipes, and anecdotes to food across cultures.
To participate in the picnic gathering, you are invited to prepare and bring a dish (or a snack) that has brought you comfort during this uncertain time. It could be your family’s traditional recipe, the go-to you always prepare or the food that reminds you of home.
