Backstage Pass: Meet the lady behind social initiative, Culture Kitchen

Adrianna Tan is the founder of Culture Kitchen, a social initiative to gather people from all walks of life, all nationalities and cultures, and all languages and beliefs, to bond and celebrate Singapore’s diversity over a meal.

She will take the stage amongst seven other speakers at Backstage Pass, Peatix‘s community event for organisers. In the lead up to Backstage Pass, Adrianna shares a little snippet into her thoughts on #HomeGrownSG.

Favourite Local…
Food: Laksa
Chill-out spot: Spiffy Dapper
Event: Samsara parties at Going Om
Kitchen/Hawker: Amazing Pakistani food at Usman in Desker Road, especially the haleem and nihari

The best part about organising events in Singapore is people are really passionate about causes; you just have to press the right buttons.

The thorn in our flesh when organising events is permits, licensing and the general inability to interface with the public without a ton of paperwork but we nipped it in the bud through general resourcefulness and ingenuity.

Open collaboration is #HomeGrownSG to me! Everything amazing about Singapore comes from fusion, learning and sharing. Such as our food. Like this “homok”, a Thai otah curry in a coconut.
