Sounds Like Scran: Listening Sessions, online, 20 February 2021, free entry - Visit now

As part of International Mother Language Day, Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) is working together with artist Semay Wu to create a Mancunian Audio Cookbook exploring the City’s language diversity through the common thread of food culture.

Like a traditional cookery book, each ‘page’ of Sounds Like Scran will showcase a chosen dish. This dish will not be described by the instructions on how to cook it, but by the stories and experiences that surround it.  We are inviting all residents of Greater Manchester to share their food culture in the form of ‘audio postcards’. We’re interested in all kinds of cooking and food: from the things you make for a special occasion to a quick fix when you’re pushed for time, and everything in between.

Alongside an open invite to submit content, we are also facilitating a free-to-attend 1-on-1 Zoom sessions with artist and facilitator Semay Wu. You will be invited to share the story of your chosen dish with Semay, talk through your stories and connection to the food and finally, retell your food story in your mother language. Part of the audio from these sessions will be recorded for use in this digital artwork.

These Zoom based chats are an informal and welcoming way to share your food story and elements of these discussions will become part of the work, exhibited online from April 2021.
