SAW is working with artist Monica Shanta at Taunton Together and Bridgwater Together this autumn – join us at these community-run multicultural events for international food, music, dance, workshops, community information, talks, films and more – sharing and celebrating the many cultures in Somerset.
FREE EVENTS and everyone is welcome.

More about Monica Shanta

‘The Fried Egg Cafe’ – Fried Eggs on Toast Served with Feedback Forms is a work by Monica Shanta and will be performed at both events.  The piece speaks to experiences of exported culture through empire, immigration, displacement and contemporary experiences of cultural meetings, both creative and incongruous. An aspect of the Cafe is that it takes place as a make-shift enterprise unpacked and set up by the ‘immigrant’/Monica – she has no access to kitchen or home but carries on regardless…. The Cafe provokes conversation and sharing through a surprising, light hearted and communal eating experience.
