A safe, secure home can make a huge difference to the quality of a person’s life. Yet, there is a lack of affordable and appropriate housing across Australia. In fact, some reports suggest that 195,000 Australian households are on the waitlist and another 433,000 affordable properties are needed by 2036 to meet the need.
To raise awareness of this issue, every year, Link Housing holds an annual community art exhibition No Place Like Home.
No Place Like Home 2020 art exhibition is moving online for the safety of our community. Artworks will be showcased in a online gallery on our website that artists and the general public can visit at any time.
We have also added a photo competition, Community Connections open to Link Housing residents: Enter photo competition for your chance to win.
The exhibition, which has been running for four years, gives both residents and non-residents from NSW the opportunity to contribute artworks around the theme No Place Like Home.
If you’re a Link Housing resident with creative talents or an interest in art, this is a great way to showcase and even sell your work.
You don’t have to be a professional artist to apply – artworks from people of all abilities are welcome and will be displayed at the exhibition.
We accept a wide range of different mediums such as paintings, sculptures and sketches as long as your work addresses the theme – No Place Like Home.
The CEO of Link Housing, Andrew McAnulty explained the importance of the exhibition:
“We are so pleased that the exhibition is going from strength to strength. Thank you to the local councils – City of Ryde, North Sydney and Hornsby Shire – for supporting the exhibition and helping to raise awareness about the need for safe and affordable housing.”
The deadline to submit entries is 5PM Friday 26 June 2020.
You can keep up to date with the news about the art exhibition here on our website, and our Facebook event page.
