What A Home Means To You - Call out for Community Art Exhibition

Published on 01 June 2017

The City of Ryde Council in partnership with Link Housing is calling on local artists for submissions for a new community art exhibition that raises awareness about homelessness.

Titled What a Home Means to You, the exhibition will reveal the importance of a home and the role it plays in our lives.  It will run from Wednesday June 28 to Saturday July 8 at See Street Gallery, Meadowbank.

City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Bill Pickering, said:  “Art is a great vehicle to get ideas and concerns across about serious issues like affordable housing. 

“While many of us take a safe, secure home for granted, there are those in our community who struggle to provide a stable home environment for their family. 

“This exhibition will help raise awareness of affordable housing and we are delighted to partner with Link Housing to present this new and important creative venture.”

Link Housing is a leading not-for-profit community housing provider for people on very low to moderate incomes.   They manage around 1500 homes across the Northern Sydney region.

Link Housing CEO, Andrew McAnulty, said:  “We encourage Ryde residents to visit the See Street Gallery and take advantage of this wonderful initiative.  It’s a rare opportunity to see pieces from a variety of Sydney artists, and their interpretation of the theme”.

Submissions for What a Home Means to You are invited from all artists using a range of mediums, including paint, ceramics and sculpture.
