Residency at Asia-Art-Activism. Cuong Pham and I spent time at a few Vietnamese and Chinese community centers; we had lunch and chats there. We also organised low key events at Raven Row; friends and colleagues came to cook, share tea, played Đá cầu, Ô ăn quan, badminton, practice tai chi. We talked about calling the project ‘Bạn đã ăn trưa chưa?’ ‘Have you had lunch yet?’. Those essential, joyful, nourishing interactions between people happen on a regular basis at the community centres we visited. Most of them were at threat of closing down, and still are today.
