Coffeeshop Conversations Portsmouth: Women over Water


Brighton-based artist Hong Dam chats with Dr Isabelle Cheng about the experiences of Asian women seeking refuge overseas, discussing the balance between adapting to new surroundings and maintaining links with places left behind.

The theme of this discussion is ‘Women over Water’. What memories do we keep with us from childhood, and how do they connect us to certain locations?

Hosted by some of the best independent coffeeshops in Portsmouth, Coffee Shop Conversations are an opportunity to discuss and exchange views over free tea, coffee, and cake.

Journeys aim to bring the talent of local, national, and international refugee artists to the general public, creating a positive interface with the community.
