HELLO, I'M KHAI &
THIS IS RUMAH
I'm an independent creative producer originally from Singapore and currently based in London.
I moved to London in late 2018 to pursue my Masters in Creative Producing at Royal Central, School of Speech & Drama. I mostly produce big ideas to work on shoestring budgets.
I started RUMAH (which means HOME in the malay language) because I don't see myself represented as an Asian creative in The UK today. When we talk about 'representation' I don't just meant a seat on the table, but I'm talking about building a new table together and working collaboratively.
During the pandemic
I re-imagined a space for Asian diaspora creatives to integrate & collaborate.
Started in Jan, 2020, Welcome To My Crying Party is a monthly online workshop to check in, learn a new skill & understand how to support your wellbeing.
#REPRESENTATION is key in building a community.
