Recipes of Resilience is a photographic essay by Rohingyan women who have carved out a new, temporary home in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur assimilating into local ways of life through a beautiful blending of religion & identity even as they remain stateless, trapped in cycle of uncertainty and instability.
The photos are part of a larger project, a cookbook that weaves the personal stories of the shared love between the Rohingyan and Malaysian communities organised by the Reyna Movement, a Singaporean non-for-profit that seeks to support and empower refugee women.
Please join us on August 23 2018 in the Harvard Lecture Theatre on UTAS Sandy Bay campus from 5:30 to 7pm for the opening of this exhibition, prefaced by a talk on the politics of asylum in Malaysia and this arts project by
Raeesah Khan, the founder of the Reyna Movement.
The event is free to attend! Please RSVP for catering purposes.
The Amnesty UTAS Group will have a table in the foyer for people to sign action cards asking the Australian government to cease funding the Myanmar Military’s ongoing campaign of violence against the Rohingya people.
