6pm-9pm - A Place to Call Home
A Place to Call Home is an art installation and community project developed by artists Priscilla Ong and India Collins. It is a merging of two creative concepts that celebrate three communities and their unique concepts of ‘home’.
The first element is a community engagement project lead by photographer and graphic artist Priscilla Ong. Priscilla will gather stories and images from each community to develop a unique multimedia artwork, people can also add images to the installation on the night.
Secondly India Collins has developed an art installation using ‘house’ structures and light to create a mini suburb that the community can explore, play in, add to and reflect on what they love about their out suburb. The installation features light, sound and projection to stimulate all the senses and create an immersive experience. Each installation will be unique to the suburb featuring the stories and images collected by Priscilla Ong.
‘A Place to Call Home’ questions our notions of home, is it a building, is it family, the community or something more.
