Join The Brown Council for Them Heavy People, a night of intimate storytelling and some delicious Burmese and Iraqi food.
Them Heavy People is about sharing diaspora stories, it's about us, by us, for all. A night to connect, rejoice and lament at our complex brown/black/asian third culture lives.
This edition explores those of us who are 'mixed-race'. The space in between, where you are neither this nor that, maybe a bit of everything, maybe something brand new. How is it like growing up 'mixed', stumbling into your identity and maintaining a sense of connection with your communities?
On the night, we bring together five storytellers to each tell a true story of their own. Our favourite social enterprise, Parliament on King will serve up some hearty tongue inspiring cuisine.
Come along, with friends, bring a date, come on your own, meet some good people and celebrate being a different shade of brown.
