Stories from Home

‘Home’ can mean many things for artists – from intimate knowledge of a genre, artform or practice to a deep connection with a national culture, its customs and traditions. What happens when we open our homes to others … or bring our familiar ground to them? Can shared stories create a home for all?

During this year’s Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Wheeler Centre presents a series of discussions that unravel the thinking behind three shows, each arising from the meeting of different cultures and artforms. Join us as we count out the creative dividends of collaboration, exchange and knowing your neighbours.
