Kimjang Project: Making and Sharing Kimchi
Kimjang: Making and Sharing Kimchi is a brand-new project made possible by money raised by National Lottery players.
It involves recording, archiving and distributing 20 authentic kimchi recipes and personal Kimjang experiences from North, South and Chinese-Korean residents, and hosting an annual Kimjang Festival on New Malden High Street on the third Saturday of November.
The grand finale of the project will be the Kimjang Festival will include a Kimchi Experience Area where you can learn about and make various types of kimchi, stalls selling Korean food, live music performances and a cultural activities programme for the whole family to enjoy together.
We will also hold a Make Your Own Kimjang session where Korean residents and locals from the entire borough can buy pre-prepared cabbage and Kimchi seasoning to make their own Kimjang kimchi on the day.
The brand KIMJANG is created to introduce kimjang in a friendly and easy-to-understand way to international residents of New Malden who are already familiar with it. ‘Healthy’, ‘Together’, ‘Sharing’ – These three core values of the brand are represented through the look and feel, colours, typo graph and graphical elements, encouraging people to actively engage with the brand and project and make the festival a true local celebration of their own.
