“The kitchen was a bit kitschy, like there's a statue of Jesus but then next to it there's a Pokemon"

Bhenji Ra

A mother's kitchen can be a powerful place

My Mother's Kitchen shares stories from the hearth. Centred around their childhood kitchens, listen as 8 LGBTIQ+ storytellers relay intimate memories of joy and comfort mixed with inequality and hardship.

The experience strikes a balance between playful; in its UX design and storyteller humour, and serious; in its exploration of under-represented stories that discuss upbringing, self discovery and identity. It’s an immersive audio visual experience: a bit like a game of mini golf on a mobile phone, with a tiny podcast at each hole!
