Mother’s Spice - Information & Cultural Exchange

Mother’s Spice

Mother’s Spice is a project for engaging newly arrived Western Sydney migrant/refugee mothers from Central, South and South East Asia. The project focuses on the creative development, production and presentation of a public performance that uses spices as a trigger to unravel the mothers’ personal narratives and journeys of migration  and refuge to Australia via multimedia presentation, interactive performance and degustation.

The first stage of creative engagement workshops were facilitated by artists/facilitators Katrina Douglas, Yamane Fayed and Marian Abboud.

The second stage of creative development and rehearsals leading up to the performances is facilitated by artists/facilitators Sally Sussman, Marian Abboud, Yamane Fayed and Peter Kennard.


Partnering with Sydney’s Art Month, ICE presents Mother’s Spice – A taste of life-changing journeys. Following the stories of four women from Sydney’s Western Suburbs, the performance is sensory driven  and interactive. Triggering memories of journeys and motherhood spice is used to evoke and bind these unique tales of migration and refuge.
