Sweet and Sour is a bi-monthly Zine publication based in Canberra. Our focus is on Asian identities, and the unique experiences associated with being Asian in Australia. When more than one culture demands your allegiance, there is a bizarre sense of existing between multiple worlds, yet not fully belonging to either. Many of us belong to multiple cultural identities, and face issues relating to belonging, racism and identity. Sweet and Sour is a safe space to explore and share our cultures in a supportive and creative environment.
The name Sweet and Sour comes from the well known culinary dish which has largely become very westernized. It is also a node towards the vast array of flavours found exclusively in Asian foods, and similarly the expansive range of identities and experiences associated with being Asian.
