RUMAH, which means HOME in the Malay language, is re-imagining a space for artists from the various Asian diasporas in Britain to integrate & collaborate.


Started in 2020 by Khai, RUMAH aims to serve Asian diaspora artists who are invisible and under-represented. Our programmes include facilitating artists development, creative workshops led by Asian artists for Asian artists, a festival to celebrate new & mid-career artists and parties to network, share experiences and BIG UP yourself!

RUMAH's programmes prioritize Asian diaspora communities, which includes East Asian,

South-East Asian, South Asian, West Asian,
Central Asian, and including those of mixed-Asian heritage and from non-British backgrounds. It is crucial that we do not exclude anyone based on their country of birth or where they grew up.

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 work as an independent producer where I make big ideas work on shoestring budgets. Sometimes I’m called a magician, a bank, a cheerleader and a fire-fighter. I have been very fortunate to have worked with amazing artists throughout my producing career.

​I have always wanted to initiate a platform that will house the various Asian diaspora* artists in London. Just imagine, you're in a room (virtual or physical) full of creatives from the Asian diasporas - taking up space, owning their narratives and celebrating each other's artistic practice. I personally started RUMAH 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
