Let’s Cook Soup Together!

People are known to bond over food, yet kitchens and dinner tables can be touchy and political sites for families and social groups. In this workshop, I used a pot of soup as a metaphor for family and guided participants to think about how they might contribute to it.

The workshop participants gained self-insight and learned that acceptance and appreciation of individual differences was possible through civil conversation over food. Understanding how we interact in a group gave us insight to how our individualities have been shaped, informing how people contribute to other group interactions outside comfort zones.

This workshop was supported by The Future of Our Pasts Festival as part of the Singapore Bicentennial.
It will be held again at the National Library Board’s Read!Fest 2020.
