Topik launched at dis/placed exhibition

Topik launched food without borders at dis/placed exhibition. My stall had hundreds of people visiting at Shoreditch Town Hall. It was not only sharing food from the other Turkey but also sharing the diverse cultural heritage of minorities in Turkey. It was a truly marvellous and unforgettable launch.

Thank you to all Counterpoints Arts team and their lovely volunteers, all artists and visitors!
