EAT YOUR WAY THROUGH HAYMARKET WITH SECRET SNACKS, A SELF-GUIDED STREET AND ONLINE CAMPAIGN BY 4A CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY ASIAN ART TO ENCOURAGE HUNGRY SYDNEYSIDERS TO SEEK OUT MUST-TRY EATS FROM LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND EATERIES.
Haymarket is a much loved precinct for locals and tourists alike—famous for its vibrant energy and copious mix of Asian restaurants and food joints. Haymarket has also been the home of 4A for more than 20 years, so the team has seen first-hand how the recent pandemic has affected local artists as well as the food community. As we safely edge out of lockdown, 4A invites the public to venture into Haymarket to discover hidden gems or revisit mainstay meals, all in one locale.
For Secret Snacks, 4A has invited four Asian-Australian creatives to hand-pick their favourite dishes and what makes them special. From comfort slurps to big cravings, this initiative connects food makers, artists and the public through stories that inspire memories, curiosity, and togetherness.
This Lunar New Year, 4A is thrilled to team up with More of Something Good to turn profiles by Benjamin Law, Kylie Kwong, Luisa Brimble, and James Jirat Patradoon into mouth-watering artworks. Keep an eye out for posters and decals across Sydney streetscapes and public sites from 8 February-12 March 202. Follow 4A on Instagram (@4A_aus) for project updates.
Secret Snacks is commissioned by 4A and designed by More of Something Good. Featuring tried-and-tested dishes from Boon Cafe, Chat Thai, Gumshara, and Nakano Darling.
This project is part of the City of Sydney’s Sydney Lunar Festival, and is supported by the City of Sydney.
