The Homesickness Project is a roving, multi-platform, collaborative project in search of home. Its thesis is that the role of the world as a home for its citizens is under threat and that collectively, we are increasingly homesick.
Artists, subject matter experts, community groups and the general public will participate in a series of events that elaborate on and investigate possible answers to these questions: What does it mean to be civilised against an increasingly market-driven system of social values? What is required from our environment for us to thrive?
The ensuing discussions, lectures, performances, demonstrations and exhibitions will invite public contribution and form the basis for new Tasmanian projects that will return to the gallery later in the year.
An opportunity to observe and participate in the creative development of collaborative, socially-engaged art works.
