New Dwelling Update!

We are getting closer to our show dates in Sydney, Australia. Artists for the project hail from Australia, Portugal, Ecuador, The United States, and Canada to name a few. We are still seeking funding to help with spaces and workshops for people living within the Sydney vicinity. 

“Dwelling” is an examination of the loss and the emotional ramifications of losing your home. The project represents social interaction and initiates dialogue between the artist and their community. The project will be a multimedia experience that will be later intercede with projection mapping for a video installation as well as include interviews from those affected by the loss of their homes.

This is open to all artists from a variety of backgrounds, and levels of maturity. We are asking artists to submit their ideas, stories and inquiries to For ways to donate, feel free to email or visit our Support page here.

It was a wonderful experience going to Bennington College for our artist members.
