Wait I’m From Wuhan at HOME Manchester, Manchester, Until 31 December 2020 - Book now

Wait I’m From Wuhan is a digital artwork exploring the story of Jasmine, who was adopted by a White British family after being abandoned as a baby in a train station in Hankou, China. Now, in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak, bombarded with media images of masked faces and the deserted streets of Wuhan, Jasmine is struggling to decide whether or not to search for her birth family.

For Jasmine, who has grown up in England, her birthplace – Wuhan – has only ever been a word on a piece of paper. Now, in the midst of a global pandemic, everybody is talking about the place she was born, and Jasmine finds she can no longer ignore her past and the people she left behind. Is it too late for her to find her family?

Created by writer Naomi Sumner Chan, Jasmine’s story can be followed through a series of weekly blogs and daily Instagram posts throughout the month of July. Engaging and timely, audiences can follow and interact with Jasmine via the Instagram account @waitimfromwuhan.

Wait I’m From Wuhan is a Chinese Arts Now (CAN) commission for Homemakers, an online festival by HOME Manchester. While we’ve got you…be sure to check out our full rundown of all of the commissions on offer at Homemakers.
