Cuong Phu Le writes to tell us about a Pho exhibition he plans to tour around Australia and then the world. He adds, "If you could help me to spread the word, that would be fabulous so that I could collect more new ideas and stories around this infamous dish." Have you got a story about Pho? A memory? A favourite place, where is it, why is it your favourite? Drop a comment. Or email Cuong on cuong(at)casulapowerhouse(dot)com
"I Love Phở is an innovative Community Cultural Development project that featured at Liverpool Regional Museum in June 2006 with a great success. Casula Powerhouse has been researching and developing this project over the last three years.
The project uses Phở as a provocative, political, social and cultural metaphor to investigate the process of migration and Vietnamese diaspora. I Love Phở aims to create open dialogues among visual artists, local communities, writers, academics, restaurant owners and broader audiences exploring issues of identity, history and diaspora over a bowl of hot Phở."
