North South Feast West

North South Feast West

The Immigration Museum at the beautiful heritage listed Customs House wanted to bring who they are and what they do to a new audience – an audience that carry a perception that this place is not for them.

North South Feast West presents a series of festivals and workshops – a cultural celebration of food with themes such as chocolate, chilli, tequila and coffee. Targeted squarely at young 20 and 30-something Melburnians NSFeastW creates a vibrance and energy for the Immigration Museum, beautifully captured through the commissioned illustrations from Sister Arrow.

The perception has been challenged and the paradigm well and truly shifted – North South Feast West is selling out both festivals and workshops with Friday evening numbers frequently pushing past the anticipated 200 people and closing in on 1000.
